Hartlepool-based J&B Recycling has announced further growth with eight new roles.
J&B, which won its first recycling contract in 2003, now has 21 vehicles, over 200 members of staff and recycles 170,000 tonnes of materials annually across three sites in Hartlepool and Middlesbrough.
The firm says it has achieved an increase in turnover by 41% to £13.5m.
Managing director Vicki Jackson-Smith (pictured) said: “In 2017 we are looking to build upon the success we’ve seen and are identifying potential new development areas that could lead to further growth in staff and turnover.”
J&B’s growing portfolio includes leading names such as Nifco UK, Lidl and UK Steel Enterprise as well as many high-profile national and regional businesses.
The eight new positions are part of J&B’s strategy to improve employee advancement and development and improve the workplace for current and future employees.
As well as the new additions, J&B has made a number of changes and promotions.
Sarah Jennsion, initially a part-time employee, is now full time in her new role as a weighbridge supervisor.
Craig Flounders, who was originally employed as a quality inspector in November 2015, has been promoted to quality control supervisor, and Clare Bradley has expanded her role in customer services and now also works within the quality control aspect of the business.
