Our drylining side has won the tender for an exciting new site in Bodmin for Persimmon Homes Cornwall. This new sites brings us back in to Cornwall in a big way, having worked a lot there in the past, recently we have been more successful North of the Tamar. The new contract is hugely welcomed and a site we are really looking forward to working on.
Our carpentry division continues it’s recent run off success by winning a brand new site for Larkfleet Homes SW in Ilton, Somerset. Ilton, near Taunton is a great location for us as a business and has seen a lot of work carried out by the Group in the past with our local labour. We are excited about this project with Larkfleet and continuing to broaden our workload with this up and coming builder in the area.
The Group has now expanded into a new division undertaking surface repair work and sealants. This is a new and exciting chapter for the company. It enhances our drive to complete plots to a high standard even during the difficult scenarios that occur on site. The repairs division can undertake work on damaged doors and handrails, chipped bath and shower trays during installation, scratched decorative stone and UPVC cills and other small repairs when needed. This in some ways is an extension of our aftercare service but, during the build process. If the damage is not extreme or too extensive, the plastic surgeon repair can often be the most financial viable and most time efficient way of finishing the house. ‘This is a sector we have been looking at for some time’ Louis, Managing Director explains…’It is a division that links well with our award winning customer care team and allows us to offer a greater variety of services to our clients and one in particular we are often asked to undertake. With the Groups ‘can-do’ attitude it gives our client base comfort knowing these small repair items won’t become bigger problems further down line’.
On Saturday Managing Director, Louis, was invited to Sidmouth RFC to watch the first team play Winscombe. During the day Louis was presented a shirt with our new logo on, which will be worn by the Colts team in the league. Louis was pleased to receive the shirt and thanked Sidmouth for the great day which saw a convincing win. The Shirt sponsorship deal follows on from the recent refurbishment of the changing rooms which MJS Group played a part in. We wish Sidmouth RFC all the best for the rest of the season and keep the top place in the league.
MJS Group has been successful in winning two exciting multi trades sites in Somerset across our Drylining, Painting and tiling business. These two new sites add big volume to our workload in the area. The sites located in Yeovil and Sherborne give the labour in the area continued work and with our long standing client, Persimmon Homes, give comfort in the product and time scales they require.
MJS Group has furthered it’s support of local teams and charities, we are now sponsoring Sharks Rugby League Juniors. The team is close to us as our Supervisor for South Devon and Cornwall, Ryan, is a coach of the Juniors. It is great to support young people in the sporting world and allows us to expand our corporate image in Plymouth. We are very proud to sponsor the team and wish them all the success this season.
MJS Drylining and MJS Decorating have won the contract to continue on to the next phase of Saltram Meadows for Persimmon Homes Cornwall. This is a site we have been on for many years and are delighted to remain the contractor of choice for the business and provide local labour with work on the doorstep.
This week saw the addition of a new client and site for our carpentry team. This new development is with Larkfleet Homes in Ivybridge. MJS Group have just finished a site in this South Devon town and are delighted to keep the local labour in the area. Our carpentry team will be undertaking the timber frame erection as well as the carpentry fixes. MJS Group have over 12 years of experience with Timber Framing, if your development uses Timber Frame, we are the local experts in this type of build and have a large labour pool to undertake this work.
We are also looking into the other trades on this development and hope to hear more information soon.
As part of a new sponsorship agreement, MJS Group have teamed up with Sidmouth RFC. This new partnership will allow the rugby players at Sidmouth the opportunity to try the site trades and start an apprenticeship with the company. One element of this new relationship is the support MJS Group can provide a local rugby club, especially with the new facilities. The company has been a part of the rebuilding of the changing rooms allowing the players to prepare for each game in a more professional environment. Louis Greenaway – Managing Director, commented on the new partnership. ‘It’s great to be involved with a local rugby club such as Sidmouth, the drive the players and coaching staff have really shows where they want to be going and winning leagues. It is a great opportunity for us to team up with such a great group of people and give them the chance to join our apprenticeship programme and offer something different.’
