The investment brings 8 new jobs to the regions and allows the company to expand its service to areas such as Doncaster, Sheffield and Barnsley.

Key customers include Persimmon Homes, Miller Homes, Bellway Homes, Sir Robert McAlpine, Robertson Construction and McCarthy & Stone.
Commenting on the expansion, head of company sales, Michael Fahey said: ‘As a company, we already have established Key Accounts Teams across the North East and Yorkshire and we are delighted to be continuing our growth and investment in South Yorkshire.
We are very lucky to have such talented and passionate staff across all aspects of the business and the new team at Rotherham is no different. They bring with them a wealth of product, industry and local knowledge and customers can expect the high level of service that James Burrell has a well-earned reputation for’.
