New jobs are on their way to South Tyneside as a homes repair and maintenance company gets set to expand.
Preferred Management Solutions Ltd (PMS), which is based in Hebburn, is aiming to win more bigger contracts after putting expansion plans into action.
The company, which also has offices in London, Leicester and Bradford, has invested in an upgraded bespoke job management system to help fulfil repair contracts with greater efficiency and speed.
The technology, made possible with regional fund management firm NEL Fund Managers, will also provide the capacity it requires to build on the work it currently manages each week.
Six new jobs are expected to follow, with 14 more to be created by 2018.
Preferred Management Solutions carries out emergency repairs on building and sites of all sizes through a roster of fully-vetted contractors who cover every trade. The company also has its own self-delivery service and runs a PMS-liveried gas division.
Tony Morrison, operations director at PMS, says: “We’ve built up a strong reputation in our industry and already work for a roster of impressive names, and the investments we’re making in further improving how we manage, monitor and deliver our services gives us the confidence and flexibility to take the business to the next level.”
“The options offered by the Growth Fund fit well with our particular requirements, and the NEL team helped us crystallise our business planning around how we could best use it.”
