An increasing order book means roofing and cladding specialist Cladceil is continuing to take on new staff as its workload goes from strength to strength.
Last year the company, based at Falcon Court, Manners Industrial Estate, Ilkeston, celebrated an annual turnover of £7m – a record since a management buyout in 2008.
Now it is looking to repeat that trend this year and set a new sales figure. It is currently working on a contract worth more than £1m for Derby firm GF Tomlinson who are building a a new facility for Ibstock Brick in Ibstock, Leicestershire. This multi-million investment would create the world’s most modern brick factory to keep up with demand for bricks to supply the house building sector.
This job, to supply and install cladding on an 18,000 sq metre building is one of the biggest jobs the company has ever done. Cladceil continues to work closely with Derby-based Ivygrove developments, including a new garage and showroom for a Mercedes Mertrux dealership in Wilford, Nottingham and various industrial units in the city. The increased workload means that the company has taken on two contract managers in the last year and it is now looking to take on at least two trainee contracts managers and drafts persons.
The company will soon start work on a £750,000 contract for a new building at Denby Hall business park, Denby, and a £75,000 contract for Prime Construction on behalf of Don Amott Caravans at Hilton.
In total the order book has 17 jobs in the pipeline for the third quarter of the year. Stuart Pinson, one of three directors alongside Tony Seabridge and Peter Ward, said:
“We are pleased to see that the increased demand for our work last year has still held up and is going from strength to strength.
“Moving forward, we are involving the staff in determining the direction of the business by inviting them to give their views at board
meetings. Also, we have started a scheme to give them a bonus linked to the financial success of the firm.”
