Happy Birthday dear Toppesfield! The 24th of February marked our 10 year birthday (from the date of our incorporation), we didn’t actually carry out a contract for a few weeks but have carried out several since! The Directors would like to put on record their gratitude for everybody that has supported the business over the past 10 years so that’s our clients, our suppliers and of course our workforce.
We achieved Fleet Operators Recognition Scheme (FORS) bronze award. This is a major safety initiative related to vehicles and supported by many major construction companies such as Skanska and Kier MG. Well done to Sean Benneworth our Fleet Manager who was responsible for ensuring that we achieved this.
We are delighted to report that tacit agreement has been reached with Amey for the award of the HA (ASC) framework contracts for Areas 6&8. This establishes the business further as a key player within this sector of the market and we are very pleased to be working with Amey, one of the leading main contractor in the UK.
More great news for Toppesfield with the addition of Mike Archer and Mick Howard to the business to bolster our penetration into the Highways and Major Infrastructure Sectors. Both are very well known in the construction industry with Mike joining us from Aggregate Industries where he was the Managing Director for the contracting business, and Mick from Balfour Beatty where he was their Regional Director for the Southern Area.
