Sector work remains buoyant for G F Tomlinson

With over 125 years of experience in the construction industry, Midlands contractor G F Tomlinson is looking ahead to a prosperous future with a forward pipeline of works of circa £90million in both the public and private sectors.

The Derby-based construction group has been successful across all sectors, including education, commercial and residential.

The family business - which was named as a top 10 contractor in the East Midlands by a recent construction industry survey - has re-modelled the company to take into account the recent changes in the economy.

This strategy has been beneficial as the business looks towards 2020 with a greater emphasis on the more buoyant markets of residential, facilities management and the logistics sector. Construction Frameworks also still play a significant part in G F Tomlinson’s business with a consistent client base and focus.

In order to ensure it has the skill base and resources it needs to build on this strategy, G F Tomlinson continues to provide technical apprenticeships to many young people looking for a career in the construction sector, something they have done consistently for the last 40 years.

Following in the footsteps of his recently retired father, Barry Sewards, group chairman and managing director, Andy Sewards said: “Having been established for over 125 years, we have a tremendous breadth of experience throughout the industry, with forward-thinking values to back this up.

“We are now at a point in time where we are re-modelling the business to look ahead to the future, embracing new ideas to capitalise more on the buoyant sectors in the marketplace. This approach will ensure the company is well placed, providing greater opportunities for continued success for many years to come”.
