A growing building firm has created more jobs for the town.

Fraser Projects Ltd moved from a small office on Gelderd Road to loft space in Topcliffe Mill, Morley.

The company plans to recruit at least five project managers, plus site managers, labourers and office support staff to add to their current staff.

Managing director Ryan Fraser said: “There is fantastic scope for our company to grow here, which is incredibly important as we continue to evolve.”

After being forecast to hit the £1.5m turnover mark by the end of this financial year, the company plans to hire at least 10 more employees over the next 12 months to support the workload.

The firm felt it was important that it moved into large premises with potential for further business expansion.

Commenting on the move, Mr Fraser, said: “I was impressed with Topcliffe Mill’s location, close to the M62 and M1. This means we can easily navigate to customer sites the length and breadth of the country, and we are conveniently situated on the outskirts of the vibrant city centre, where so many of our customers are developing their business or transforming existing environments. We’ve recently completed fit-outs for two independent retailers in Trinity Leeds for example, and are currently transforming a 3000 sqft office in LS1.”

Keen to make best use of his team’s fit-out skills, Mr Fraser has completely redefined the space within the traditional redbrick mill building.
