Jones Bros relocates to larger premises25th Nov 2013

Award-winning civil engineering firm Jones Bros is to relocate its head office to larger premises this month following major expansion and a clutch of new contract wins, particularly in the renewables sector.

The family firm will move part of its head office function from its current premises on the outskirts of Ruthin, to the town centre.

Built in 1993, for the Welsh Office, the new premises (pictured) were later occupied by Denbighshire County Council and boast more than 10,000 square feet.

The building has undergone a re-design and refurbishment programme and has been re-named Ty Glyn, in recognition of Jones Bros co-founder Glyn Jones, who died aged 91 last year.

The move comes as the company continues to secure new contracts, the most recent being a joint venture partnership to provide civil and electrical infrastructure for one of the UK’s largest onshore wind farms in South Wales.

“We are really excited about this move,” said Ruth James, commercial manager of the company and granddaughter of Glyn.

“We have been at our current premises since 1970 and the additional space available at Ty Glyn has been designed to provide our team with a modern working environment and excellent client meeting facilities.

“Freeing up the space at Denbigh Road, our existing premises, will now give us the opportunity to redevelop the training, plant and workshop facilities to enable improved service delivery.”

Ruth is the third generation of the Jones family involved in the business working alongside her father, managing director Huw and sister Helen, a quantity surveyor.

She added: “We chose to stay in Ruthin as although we now work across the UK, we still have strong links with the town.”

Jones Bros will retain its premises in Denbigh Road for its plant and training facilities, with its administrative, technical and professional staff relocating to the new building.

Founded in the 1950s and employing 300 people, the Jones Bros operates across the UK in sectors including highways, coastal and flood protection, waste management facilities and renewable energy, specialising in wind and hydro and infrastructure for nuclear, gas and coal generation.
