Guttering specialists take on third unit11/07/2017
A rapidly growing gutter replacement specialist has taken on new premises in the Black Country to cope with demand, leading investment and property management company LCP has announced.
Thaxen Developments, which specialises in replacing concrete guttering with uPVC, has opened another unit at Block C, Bay 1, The Pensnett Estate, Kingswinford. It already operates from two units on LCP’s flagship business estate.
Lucy Hurst, managing director of the company, said: “The company is growing very quickly and in just two years we have gone from three members of staff to more than 30 and at the end of our second year, recorded a turnover of £3 million.
“We are specialists in a niche market, focusing on post-war housing that has concrete-made gutters, and have become market leaders in this sector and work across the country.
“We’ve moved from having just a small office on The Pensnett Estate to now having three units. We were keen to stay on the estate because it is centrally located and is convenient for our staff, so were very pleased when LCP found this additional unit for us because it means we can continue to expand.
“The additional space at The Pensnett Estate will allow us to develop our business further and we’re very excited to start working on this,” added Lucy.
Paula James, industrial lettings manager at LCP, said: “It’s great that a local company is growing and I’m pleased that we’ve been able to accommodate Thaxen Developments as it continues with its expansion plans.”
