A property repair business has taken on 13 new members of staff after a period of continued growth that saw turnover increase to £2.65 million in six years.

Meddo Lincoln, which operates in Lincolnshire and South Yorkshire, has taken on two new managers, ten tradespeople and a new PA.

The company's workforce has grown from five to 41 since 2006, when its turnover stood at £273,000.

Formerly NJ Woodco, the company joined he national consortium-style business Meddo, which expanded its geographical market to include additional areas of South Yorkshire.

The firm's growth has been helped by contracts in both the private and public sectors.

Jim Ward, managing director at Meddo Lincoln, said the business was looking to expand into new markets after its recent successes.

He said: "The continued growth of our business has been hugely pleasing, making us a significant employer and an increasingly visible and recognisable company across not only around the Lincoln area, but the whole county and now large parts of South Yorkshire.

"Our client base includes a range of local authorities, as well as the University of Lincoln and public and private sector housing and property organisations, but we are now aiming to build upon the work we do and enter new markets to continue driving the business forward."

New markets include energy conservation, education and insurance repairs.

Formed in 2003, the company, is based at Witham Point on the Allenby Industrial Estate.

The business conducts reactive and planned maintenance on residential properties on behalf of local authority and social landlords.

Meddo Lincoln is part of a network of firms across the country.

These include operations in Glasgow, Manchester, Hertfordshire and London.
