Thurston Group reaps rewards of 40% sales growth

Thurston Group, a leading provider for high-quality modular and portable building solutions, is reaping the rewards of success, after a 40% sales growth this year. 

Over the last six months, the Yorkshire-based company has grown significantly, with key projects secured within the education, residential, petrochemical and rail infrastructure sectors.   

As a result of its rapid growth, the company has appointed six new employees to support the business and meet market demand.

Bob Holloway has been appointed as business development manager to manage the southern region of the UK. Bob brings with him over 30 years’ of experience in the building industry and will be responsible for growing the offsite division further. 

James Derry has joined the company as CAD engineer, and he will be responsible for automate model and drawing generation. The company has also welcomed Paul Theobald as production manager and Harrison Hudson as graduate projects manager.

In addition, the company has recently promoted Matthew Petch after 10 years’ of service. Matthew joined Thurston Group as a trainee accountant, working his way up to company accountant in 2015, before being promoted earlier this year to financial controller. 

Matthew Goff, managing director at Thurston Group, says: “It’s a really exciting time at Thurston Group and this significant growth is a huge milestone for the company. Our investment into employees is instrumental to our success and our goal is to continue expanding, both within the business and in the industry. 

“Modern methods of construction are becoming increasingly used across a range of sectors due to their speed, flexibility and cost-effectiveness. Our ambition is to continue providing high-quality modular solutions whilst growing our presence in the UK and overseas further.”

Just last year, Thurston Group created more than 60 jobs with the opening of its third manufacturing facility. The unit in Hull produces bespoke modular accommodation across a range of sectors including construction, rail and education. The site also produces its more bespoke project offering that includes buildings that have various forms of pitched roofs, curtain-wall glazing and buildings that require bespoke external cladding finishes.
