Since opening their Northampton branch in mid-2015 Rilmac Scaffolding have seen impressive growth over their first four years in the region and have recently expanded to larger premises due to demand.
The decision to open a Northampton branch on the back of winning a number of prestigious contracts in the area is paying dividends for Rilmac Scaffolding. Turnover at their Northampton business grew by over 80% in just three years, and they have more than doubled their local workforce!
Northampton’s ideal location and transport links has allowed them to not only work on projects across Northamptonshire but also on such prestigious projects as an F1 motorsport factory in Milton Keynes, university accommodation in Warwick, schools, infrastructure work, new build housing units across the region and the DNRC (Defence & National Rehabilitation Centre) near Loughborough. It has also given the company a strong base from which to expand into the West Midlands, London and the South East.
The growth of Rilmac Scaffolding in Northampton has seen an expansion in senior management as well, with Paul Wallis being taken on as Operations Director at the new depot, working alongside Contracts Director Sam McSpadden and nationwide Managing Director Des Booth.
Rilmac Scaffolding has plans in place for further, managed growth across the region, and as part of this moved into a larger depot at Round Spinney in earlier this year. The new premises cover over 60% more area than their previous yard and offers greater opportunities for success.
“We knew that Northampton would be a great location for us,” said Sam McSpadden, “and the growth we have seen here backs that up. It was always our aim to bring employment to the area and we are pleased to have more than doubled our workforce here.”
“The larger premises give us the opportunity to service larger customers and more complex projects across the region.” added Des Booth, “We already feel like part of the community and will be growing here in the long term. This is just the next step of our journey in Northampton.”
“Having previously worked with Des at Rilmac’s Lincoln Depot I am pleased to be able to re-establish our working relationship after 12 years,” commented Paul Wallis, “and I am looking forward to achieving further growth across the Northampton region.”
