WAKEFIELD MANUFACTURER SET TO CREATE 'SIGNIFICANT NUMBER' OF JOBS AS TURNOVER MORE THAN DOUBLES!
19 July 2021
A Yorkshire manufacturer has announced that it is set to more than double its turnover to £50m this year.
Thurston Group, based in Wakefield, is on track to deliver a £50m turnover for the year, more than doubling over the last three years.
The company added that it is looking for a “significant number” of new employees on the back of its growth.
Throughout the pandemic, Thurston delivered emergency intensive care units for hospitals to increase their capacity, vaccination centres to support the vaccine rollout, hospital extensions and testing centres.
Matthew Goff, managing director at Thurston Group, commented: “We’re really pleased to have seen another successful year of growth, which has produced record results in all areas increasing our turnover.
“Our continued success is directly attributed to the efforts made growing our client base throughout the UK and Ireland along with a recently secured place on the £1.6bn NHS SBS MB2 Framework, putting us at the forefront of our industry.
“Furthermore, our positive financial position means we will continue to provide capital expenditure and investment into our production facility locations; modernising and improving both the working environment for our employees.
“Whilst at the same time improving the production capacity of each Thurston’s location.
“More recently the planning for a dedicated sub-assembly facility on the Horbury site significantly improves our production capacity, whilst also increasing manufacturing floor space at this site. “
