SOUTH YORKSHIRE FENCING FIRM RELOCATES DUE TO GROWTH
A Doncaster-based commercial and security fencing contractor is on track to further expand its workforce in the coming months following a strategic move to a new 1.7 acre site on Kirk Sandall Industrial Estate.
Established in 2001 with a team of six, Hall Fencing has grown exponentially in recent years – now employing 30 staff including a fabricator, joiner, fencer erectors and office personnel. Working with leading developers, schools and local government organisations, Avant Homes, Doncaster Council, Harworth Estates and Gleeson Homes are just a few of their current contractors.
The company turned to Business Doncaster, a partner of theSheffield City Region Growth HubEnhancement Project, for advice on achieving its growth ambitions and subsequently benefited from support on funding and apprenticeships, the development of supply chain links and for advice on relocating the business to accommodate the extensive growth plans.
The Enhancement Project is financed by the England EuropeanRegional Development Fund as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020.
Having recently finished building a 6,500sq ft purpose built warehouse on the site, the firm has increased its ability to deliver its services in line with continued demand from customers across the country.
The new premises on Kirk Sandall Industrial Estate is located just four miles from Doncaster town centre and Junction 4 of the M18 and, following the move, Hall Fencing will be looking to appoint further staff in its IT, Marketing & Sales divisions, as well as a Fabrication Apprentice.
Nicola Hall, Director at Hall Fencing commented: “The Business Doncaster team hasbeen very helpful, offering plentyof information and suggesting linkswith other local firms where theremay be potential opportunities.
“The support from Business Doncaster has played a huge role in enabling us to take these positive steps, and I am excited by the prospect of developing further in future!”
