Expanding property services firm has new property of its own

GRIMSBY’S Reads Property Services has expanded, with a move to larger premises.
The provider of maintenance services to commercial and residential properties, recently relocated from Ladysmith Road to a more versatile unit in Spencer Street.
Managing director Chris Read said the move will allow the business to develop, providing room needed to enhance their services and ultimately create new jobs.
Mr Read, pictured, said: “Basically, we ran out of room at our old place. We had containers at the bottom of the yard, storage across the road and we wanted to have everything all under one roof. In our new place, we’ve got all our gear here so there’s no waiting around at wholesalers, the lads can pick it up and get straight out to jobs, so it makes our service much more efficient.”
The premises, which now houses storage, waste management and office facilities, had been derelict for some time and needed refurbishment.
He sought advice from the enterprise support organisation E-Factor about funding, and with assistance from Steve Parker, business growth hub advisor at E-Factor, the company was awarded £2,235 for new signage, decoration, CCTV installation and external roof repairs.
Mr Parker said: “Through various grants and funding opportunities, it’s great to be able to help local businesses in their goals for growth.
“RPS’s new premises are ideal with better facilities and a good location. It has been great to see the business move to larger premises to allow for continued growth.”
