" /> Construction firm Francis W Group eyes growth with North East expansion plan - Francis W Construction

Francis W Group, a construction firm, has announced it will expand into the North East by moving into a new warehouse in Darlington.

The firm, which will move into a 5,000 sq ft warehouse in Lingfield Point, has said it sees the move as part of ‘substantial investment’ into the company.

The company will also invest in its workforce and capabilities, allowing the company to provide a wider range of services to its clients.

Francis Ward, director of Francis W Group, said: “We’re expanding as there is a lot of construction work taking place in the region and we want to capitalise on it.

“We’ve recently purchased an asphalt and resurfacing company which included employing its staff and we needed a bigger space to accommodate our growing team.”

Francis W Group is the latest firm to join Lingfield Point’s growing community as the firm has recently doubled its workforce and is about to take on four apprentices.
