Increased demand leads to major growth at city firm

1 min read

HMM Mechanical and Building Services has unveiled major growth plans with investment in more employees, technology and new headquarters. 

The company based at Longbridge Hayes, Stoke-on-Trent, is increasing its workforce by 25 per cent to meet demand from its expanding customer base across the UK. 

It is also investing heavily in automation, including a one-stop-shop job management app which will streamline office and administration work – eliminating duplication and making it easier for engineers working out on site. 

And it is currently in the process of building improved head offices, based at its existing base on Chemical Lane, to accommodate its expanding team. 

The 28-strong family-run company was set up in June 2010. At that point there were six employees. 

HMM now covers mechanical and electrical installations, repairs, servicing, and maintenance both locally and around the country for domestic and commercial clients.

Customers include the supply chain giant Wincanton, the hospitality services provider Compass Group and school authorities. 

Business Development and Contracts Manager Ricky Brindley said: “2023 is going to be an exciting year for us with business growth plans incorporating a number of initiatives. 

“To help facilitate this growth we have just taken on an engineer and we want to recruit five more electricians. 

“We are also looking to bring in three more office-based staff and will continue to expand our current sub-contractors’ network around the country. 

“Current working levels will enable us to expand but the development of the new office will allow us to accommodate the additional employees we also need.” 

The business app is being built by Crewe-based Trinity Create who have also been brought in to provide sales and marketing services to help with the growth expansion. 

Kimberley Pyatt, Trinity Create Marketing Project Manager, said: “The project so far has been great with Trinity Create working several days at the HMM offices to get the best solution, while ensuring the team at HMM gets the most efficient product for their budget!

“We’re still in the early stages of the project and we’re just about to start working on the technical specification before passing it to the development team to start the build.

“We’re all super excited to get started with the build and we’re excited to continue our strong working relationship for many years to come.”
