After the war the Company was employed to build council housing. This was the only time, apart from the occasional one off speculative built house, that the company undertook mass housing projects, instead choosing to concentrate on industrial work for the Breweries and Maltings and other industries all over the country. Over time the Company also undertook civil engineering works for the Central Electricity Generating Board in the Midlands.
Contracts grew in size and number and in the 1970’s the Company had over 250 employees and was one of the largest Building Contractors in Staffordshire. Gradually, with the onset of mechanical plant and equipment, the number of labourers reduced, and the Company became one that employed mostly tradesmen, some of whom progressed to Foremen and eventually, Site Managers. This trend has continued until this day and most of our Site Managers have worked for us since leaving school.
