ROOF TILE MANUFACTURER, Russell Roof Tiles has launched a recruitment drive for what it is expecting will be a record year for the business.
Russell Roof Tiles is predicting 2021 will be its best year ever, with a predicted turnover rise of 40 per cent year on year. This is due to massive market growth and the firm resuming manufacturing production before its competitors, following its shutdown at the start of the pandemic in March last year.
Russell Roof Tiles (RRT) is the largest independent manufacturer of concrete derivatives in the UK pitched roofing market and currently employs 140 staff across its three sites (two in Burton) and Lochmaben, Scotland.
This growth is despite the fact that the construction industry is still experiencing huge materials shortages due to global challenges.
Russell Roof Tiles started 2021 with a strong order book, allowing it to invest in all of its sites, with new equipment and machinery to improve efficiencies. The firm now needs new recruits to help it continue to meet demand.
Andrew Hayward, Managing Director at Russell Roof Tiles says, “We are certainly Building Back Better, with a predicted increase in turnover of 40 per cent year on year. 2021 will be an exceptional year for the business, so, we have created two extra shifts to help meet demand. What we now need are new recruits to join our great team to help us to continue to grow.”
The company is seeking the recruitment of mechanical engineers and operators, as well as forklift truck drivers. It is also taking on apprentices to start a career in manufacturing.
Russell Roof Tiles supplies roof tiles for housebuilders and high-profile social housing and commercial projects.
