A Hull company which formed in the 1970s to capitalise on the central heating boom has unveiled its new identity following continued growth.
Tucker Mechanical and Electrical Building Services has chosen to rebrand as it cements its success in commercial, industrial and retail markets across the UK.
The complete rebranding has taken place in the wake of continuing growth for the business which topped £26m turnover in the last financial year.
New signage has been installed at the company’s head office and fabrication workshop in Rotterdam Road, Hull, and the new identity is also being rolled out across the Tucker Mechanical and Electrical Building Services fleet of vans.
Managing director Mark Snape, who invested three years ago to buy the business which he joined as a trainee draughtsman in 1981, says the rebrand reflects their core business.
He said: “The company has undergone a vast amount of change to bring in new processes and ensure that quality is maintained.”
“The rebranding of the building and our fleet now explains clearly our core business.”
The company founded in 1973 specialised in domestic central heating in Hull before expanding into the commercial and industrial sectors.
It has expanded its workforce from just ten in 1981 to a team of more than 100 including administrative staff, pipe-fitters, plumbers, electricians, and duct erectors working in Hull.
The company now has a second centre in Cradley Heath, West Midlands, managed by another director, Dave Smith.
Tucker have worked on significant projects in Hull and East Yorkshire, including notably the Siemens blade factory which opened in December 2016.
Mr Snape said: “Turnover peaked at £26m last year as a result of the Siemens project. Realistically we expect to achieve around £18m by doing what we do well every day, managing our projects and our people properly and allowing for steady growth.”
“We are unique in the industry in manufacturing our own sheet metal products, and having the second branch at Cradley Heath gives us a platform to serve the rest of the country, maintaining our quality and our competitive edge.”
“When I bought the business, my vision was to bring it round to a more efficient and sustainable way of working, future-proofing the company and making the brand sustainable. We are confident this will be reflected by the quality of our workforce and by the projects that we complete.”
The heating specialists have also recently worked on the Bridgehead office development in Hessle, Melton police station and St Stephen’s shopping centre in Hull.
They are also working on the nationwide roll-out for Pure Gym and the first phase of the new flower market at New Covent Garden in London.
The business saw growth into the retail sector in the Eighties and Nineties and is now established as a major supplier for Tesco and also undertakes work for Asda, Lidl and Sainsbury’s.
