Home improvement firm Warmseal creating jobs in Jarrow after seeing 'rapid growth' in North East
A home improvement company is moving to Jarrow and is on a recruitment drive for around 10 new members of staff in a variety of roles. The appointments are expected to be made in the next few months.
Warmseal Home Improvements are a recent success story and are expanding their operations by opening a new manufacturing site based in the town’s Viking Business Park.
The firm says it is experiencing “rapid growth” here in the North East, as well as in the South East where it also does business.
This means that the 10 new posts have been created in Jarrow for window fitters, sales people, labourers and admin staff to meet the increasing demand for their services.
The company says that with the lockdowns the UK has experienced since March 2020, increasing numbers of families are concentrating on improving their homes as they have been unable to go on the holidays they would have liked.
Warmseal deals with home improvements in a number of different parts of the house; including windows, doors and warm roofs.
The company has a showroom currently based in Throckley in the west of Newcastle. The manufacturing side of things will be done at the new site in Jarrow. The 10 new jobs created there come with the potential of more to follow.
The firm has plenty of room for expansion too. The new premises cover an area of around 30,000 square feet.
Gerard Hiscock, who is head of Warmseal’s trade division, said: “Moving into our new premises looks to improve upon our already high standards. We will be able to turn around our product quickly ensuring faster responses for our customers.
“Jarrow is an area with a strong history of manufacturing, meaning the infrastructure is there for quick transportation across the country.
“We are using the uptick in sales to focus on what we know our customers look for, which is quality windows, made quickly and to their required specifications.
“The Warmseal Manufacturing division will relocate to Viking Business Park over the coming months.”
