Franks Portlock set for growth with Sunderland move


Jul 20, 2017 #Business, #Environment

Leading asbestos and environmental management consultancy, Franks Portlock, is eyeing further growth as it creates new jobs and relocates to larger premises in Sunderland.

Headquartered in North East England and with offices in Rosyth, Fife, and Sellafield in Seacale, Cumbria, Franks Portlock provides a range of asbestos consultancy, inspection, testing and management services.

A team of 31 staff including surveyors, analysts and support staff have relocated to a new office in Hylton Park, Sunderland. The move comes as Franks Portlock celebrates 10 years in business, over which time the company has gained a reputation for delivering a comprehensive range of high quality asbestos management services.

Phil Franks, technical director at Franks Portlock, said: “Since our inception in 2007, we have grown our portfolio of consultancy, inspection, testing and management services; opened offices in the North East, Scotland and London, and increased our team to 31 staff.

“Our new office is ideally located and will provide us with the extra space required to support further expansion and our ambitious plans for future growth, while allowing us to offer an even better service for all our clients.”

Stephen Portlock, company director, added: “We’ve achieved so much as a business in the last 10 years, going from strength to strength and providing services for high profile services such as the NHS, Sellafield, local authorities in England and Scotland, and high street retailers.

“We’re seeing an increasing demand for our services and in addition to the office move, we have created new posts in commercial management and human resources. It’s an exciting time of growth for us and we’re very much looking forward to building on this success in the years to come.”

Founded in 2007, by Phil Franks and Stephen Portlock, Franks Portlock is a leading asbestos consultancy company offering a complete range of asbestos consultancy, inspection, testing and management services.
