Have your say

A Barnsley-based engineering company is launching the biggest recruitment drive in its 120 year history after winning a major utility contract.

Clayton Penistone Group specialises in the design, manufacture, installation and management of mechanical and electrical systems.

The company aims to increase its workforce by a fifth and appoint up to ten new jobs within the next 12 months. This follows its successful gain of a five year framework contract with Yorkshire Water, which it secured in collaboration with five other UK companies. The deal is potentially worth £5m a year to the Penistone-based firm. Managing director Chris Bramall said: “We have developed our professional capabilities in all areas so that we are now in a much stronger position.”
