Building A Strong Future

The carpentry division have taken on a new estimator to assist with the pricing and tendering of the quotations. Ashley has been in the industry for some time and has recently completed his HNC in Construction at Exeter College and has previous experience as a site carpenter, setting himself up perfectly for the estimator role.


Exciting times lay head for the Carpentry division with the development at Cranbrook an ideal location for our carpenters to obtain regular, local work. We have also recently obtained the site at Newton Abbot for Persimmon Homes, further extending our area of work.

Contractor of the Year

Contractor of the Year

M J Stevens have been successful in winning the Persimmon Homes sub contractor of the year. We were awarded this prize at the Persimmon Homes South West Christmas Party. In attendance were Mike Stevens, Managing Director and Louis Greenaway, Business Development Manager.

The award came as a pleasant surprise to both. Louis commented ‘It is great to win this award for the second time in only three years. It is nice to know the extra time and effort our office staff, supervision and operatives put in doesn’t go unrecognised. A great way to end the year’

The award collected by Mike, was presented to him by Persimmon Southern Chief Executive Nigel Greenaway and Managing Director Simon Perks. Mike was keen to thank the supervision and office staff for the work they have done this year and allowing him to be able to pick up this fantastic prize.

Wooden Spoon Lunch

MJ Stevens have just enjoyed the annual charity lunch at Sandy Park. The lunch was headed up by Mike Stevens with guest from the MJ Stevens Group and many close clients.

The day was put on to raise money for disadvantaged children in the South West. It is a charity MJ Stevens has continued to support for many years. The day consisted of a fantastic meal followed by excellent entertainment including a superb violinist, a comedian and an auction which raised further funds for the charity.

New Tiling Contract at Weston - Super - Mare

We have now been successful in adding the tiling contract to a site we are currently working on at Weston Super Mare for St. Modwen. This has been a great addition to our dryline and decorating divisions.

Our tiling division is ever growing with labour being continually scouted for and new sites being taking on all the time, it has been the great success story of 2011.

Multi Trade Contract Won at Newton Abbot

MJ Stevens have just won the contract to carry out the carpentry, drylining and painting works at Newton Abbot for Persimmon Homes. This is a great site for us to be working allowing us to grow our labour force and to continue our close relationship with Persimmon Homes South West.

Steve Fifield commented; ‘It is great to be working in the Newton Abbot area again and tying in the dryline and carpentry will only strengthen our position in the region’

MJ Stevens primed for 23rd annual golf day at Bovey Castle

On the 23rd September we held our annual golf day at Bovey Castle. The day was fantastic the sun was shining for all the players and the atmosphere was lovely. The day started off with all the players registering and sitting down for lunch followed by everyone getting ready and teeing off as this was a shotgun start.
The Evening started off well everyone mingling having a good time. Everyone had finished their dinner and Michael started the presentation off by giving out the apprentice off the year award which went to one of our carpentry apprentices; Ellis Barrow. Michael then went to do the prizes which were either nearest the pin or longest drive sponsored by our partnering companies; clients and suppliers.

After investing more in to the Cornwall area we have taken a new supervisor; Matt who brings with him a large labour pool and a wealth of supervision experience. This has meant we have now bought our 10th transporter within 12 months.
