Ring Stones Maintenance and Construction is celebrating its most successful year since its launch, with an increased turnover, the completion of a number of key developments, and the provision of employment opportunities for young people across Lancashire.
Ring Stones Maintenance and Construction ended 2018/19 with a projected financial turnover of £15,322,000 and a net profit of £380,000, their biggest to date.
The past twelve months have seen Ring Stones Maintenance and Construction successfully finish work on some of their most challenging developments, including:
• Gateway, a 30-bedroom, steel frame homeless facility in the heart of Burnley
• Barley View, a 28-bed care home facility in Whitworth
• A 56 unit housing development on the former Perseverance Mill site in Padiham, an eyesore which had been left derelict for many years.
Perseverance Mill was arguably the most difficult project the company has developed – working alongside the Environment Agency, Ring Stones Maintenance and Construction had to open up a culvert that ran through the centre of the site to help protect the local wildlife.
All developments have delivered employment, training and apprenticeship opportunities for young people across the region, with four apprentices currently working with Ring Stones Maintenance and Construction.
Alongside this, Ring Stones Maintenance and Construction has been dedicated to developing its existing staff, with four people successfully completing college and university level qualifications, and two people gaining NVQs.
Steven Noonan, Assistant Director of Ring Stones Maintenance and Construction, said:
“As a team, we have worked extremely hard this year, and the turnaround in our company over the past twelve months has been exceptional.
“We pride ourselves in developing our people as much as the developments we work on. We all have a passion for what we do and thrive constantly to challenge each other and those around us.
“Our approach for the next year and beyond is to continue with our established development programme, as well as commencing work on a major project of refurbishment to help solve the problem of empty homes in Burnley.
“We are currently finalising a programme that will allow us to deliver 50 properties. This will be a major scheme and, more importantly, will allow us to further employ local people across our region.”
