A Yorkshire based civil engineering firm has achieved ambitious growth plans, leading to the creation of 37 new jobs in Denaby.
Leeds based CML (Construction Marine Ltd), which carries out railway civil engineering, building and maintenance works for Network Rail, has increased its work force to over 175 – more than 100% growth in the last 18 months.
The company says the growth was planned before the recession but during the downturn it focussed on its strengths, meeting agreed expansion targets, positioning itself strongly as the UK emerged from recession.
Recent additional investment from Network Rail has accelerated the company’s growth, leading to the opening of the new depot, on Denaby industrial estate, Coalpit Road.
CML has taken on 37 additional staff including machine drivers, bricklayers, civil engineering operatives and welders.
CML has used the Department of Transport funded “enhanced spend” contract to further invest in specialist skills such as rope access training and new plant to meet the new requirements of Network Rail.
Managing director Geoff Mortimer says: “Denaby is ideally suited because of the skills available locally and also its position centrally on the London North East rail network, close to the motorway system.”
