J Tomlinson continues expansion with appointment on four West Midlands contracts

Contractor J Tomlinson has won four key West Midlands contracts worth potentially more than £25 million.

The company has been appointed to a four-year framework contract by Warwickshire Police and West Mercia Police covering servicing, maintenance, reactive repairs and minor works. The award has a potential value of up to £9.1 million over the lifetime of the agreement.

The firm has also won a five-year contract worth £10 million to replace kitchens and bathrooms in around 1,600 properties in Birmingham, Coventry, Stoke, Walsall and Wolverhampton for housing organisation Midland Heart.

In addition, J Tomlinson has recently been appointed on two contracts in Sutton Coldfield on the old Sutton Coldfield Conservative Club site. The first is a new 65-bed care home on the site of the old Conservative Club building for Hamberley Development and the second is a new building for Sutton Coldfield Conservative Club at the rear of the site. The new building is also the home of Boldmere Tennis Club and Boldmere Bowls Club. Both contracts are being constructed concurrently on the same site with a combined value of approximately £6 million.

The company now plans to open a new depot in the West Midlands and expects the contracts to secure employment for around 100 local sub-contractors as work gets underway. They represent a major development for J Tomlinson as a significant provider within the West Midlands region and contributor to the local economy.

Mark Davis, CEO at J Tomlinson, said:

“I am very pleased to announce these latest appointments for J Tomlinson in the West Midlands, a region in which we have worked for many years and where we have a growing reputation.”

“Recently J Tomlinson was proud to have been named in Deloitte’s Businesses Leading Britain 2014 report, which provides insights into the UK’s 1,000 fastest-growing businesses with annual revenues between £30 million and £1 billion. These West Midlands contracts represent significant appointments for us as we continue our expansion, and cement our position as a key player.”

The Warwickshire Police and West Mercia Police framework will be managed by the innovative Place Partnership from September 2015. This pioneering venture brings together six core partners – Hereford & Worcester Fire and Rescue Service, Redditch Borough Council, Worcester City Council and Worcestershire County Council, alongside Warwickshire Police and West Mercia Police to develop a single estate function across the public sector organisations. The collaboration will drive service integration, customer service delivery and operational efficiency to support frontline services.

The contracts for both Midland Heart and Warwickshire Police and West Mercia Police have just begun, while work has recently got underway on site for the new nursing home and pavilion in Jockey Road, Sutton Coldfield.

J Tomlinson, which offers services in construction, refurbishment, repairs and maintenance, mechanical and electrical engineering, energy efficiency, renewables, fit out and facilities management, is based in Lilac Grove, Beeston, near Nottingham, and has depots across the East and West Midlands.
