James Hargreaves Plumbing Depot is surging forward with further expansion as its two most recent branches report excellent early business to open up new job opportunities.

While plans to open up in Lancaster continue apace, trade counters 33 and 34 - Blackpool and Middlesbrough - have surpassed all trading expectations.

James Hargreaves Plumbing Depot has invested £500,000 in the developing prime sites on the Fylde Coast and Teesside.

Blackpool has smashed its initial targets to encourage management to look to add an upstairs bathroom showroom at the Mowbray Drive trade counter.

"We were always confident that the branch would be popular, but no one quite truly anticipated just how quickly it would become so busy," said area manager Martin Healy. "We have already added an extra member of staff and, at this rate, we will need to take on further personnel particularly when the bathroom showroom opens early in the New Year."

It is a similar story over at Middlesbrough where the first month of trade at Skippers Lane Industrial Estate has comfortably beaten what the firm hoped to achieve in six months' time!

Manager Chris Webster said: "We only had our official opening less than a month ago and it has been incredibly busy from day one."

"The fact that Steve Richardson (assistant manager) and myself are local and well-known in the plumbing and heating fraternity is a plus, but it is the firm's commitment to product, service and value that really sets it apart from the rest. We are already looking to recruit and that says everything on how well things are going."
