A new construction company is slowly building itself a bright future brick by brick after it announced encouraging turnover following its first three months of trading.
ELJ Construction, which was set up in September by directors Adam Fitzgerald and Robert Johnson, reported a turnover of £130,000 for the final quarter of 2012. The organisation's work mainly focuses on domestic projects and it is hoped that it can bring in more than £500,000 within the first 12 months of operation.
Speaking to ThisisStaffordshire, the directors said that in the second year it hopes to expand in order to take on bigger contracts while also offering opportunities to apprentices who are looking to take their first step on the job market.
A move to commercial projects is then mooted, with work being undertaken on shops and offices.
Mr Fitzgerald has entered himself into the Sentinel Business Awards to try and claim the Entrepreneur of the Year prize.
"The economic climate means people are investing in improving or expanding their homes rather than moving. So there is plenty of work available for companies which offer a good standard of work at the right price, which we aim to do. We have big plans for the business and ultimately would like to become property developers building and selling our own projects – like a mini St Modwen," he told the source.
ELJ's website claims that a lot of its work comes through repeat business and recommendations and it has now built up a client portfolio all around the UK.
The company is able to offer a start-to-finish service, with an in-house architect walking customers through the idea process if they are short of inspiration.
All of the organisation's sites are fully project managed which ensures that everything runs as smoothly as it possibly can do.
"Being young but with a lot of experience, we feel we have got something fresh to offer," said Mr Johnson.
