Ipswich: Tarmacadam specialist Taydal Sufacing wins £2.9m Suffolk County Council roads contract

16:57 22 May 2014

Taydal Surfacing has won a £2.9m road repair and improvement contract with Suffolk County Council.

Taydal Surfacing has won a £2.9m road repair and improvement contract with Suffolk County Council.

Independent tarmacadam specialist Taydal Surfacing has secured a £2.9million Suffolk County Council contract to carry out road repairs and improvements.

The contract, which sees the county council join rail infrastructure operator Network Rail and supermarket giant Tesco on Taydal’s list of high-profile clients, follows closely on the company’s recent purchase of a 1.3 acre site in Olympus Close, Ipswich, to which it has relocated from its former base in Great Blakenham.

Wayne Dale, owner and director, said “This acquisition is perfect for our needs and demonstrates Taydal’s considerable achievements, including securing large projects for national companies, and is a testament to our progress over the past decade.

“The new site not only allows us to retain easy travel to our repeat clients, but will also give us extra travel options to potential clients in new areas.”

Taydal, which was established in 1999, has been looking for a suitable plot of land for more than two years, and the Olympus Close site, off White House Road, came up just as the company had to vacate its old premises.

Mr Dale said the company needed a minimum of 0.6 acres for its own needs but was also looking for some development or subletting revenues, which the new site offered.

The Suffolk County Council contract involves tarmacadam work to repair and improve roads around the county during the spring and summer of this year.

“This is fantastic news for Taydal, and we are looking forward to delivering these significant road improvements for the benefit of local motorists,” Mr Dale added.

The company has continued to grow its revenues in recent years, despite the recession which has seen many firms in the construction sector struggle.

Taydal manager Richard Hutchinson said: “Taydal’s safety record is excellent and our accreditation to the CHAS Health and Safety Scheme demonstrates our commitment to keeping our staff safe at work.

“Our staff retention is also excellent, the majority of our installers have been with the business for over seven years. Finally, our commitment to staff training during the recession was a calculated risk, but one that has benefited our business.”
