Midas Group expanding with new offices in the Midlands and South East
The Midas Group has announced its expansion in two key UK regional markets with the opening of new offices in the Midlands and South East.
The company, which is one of the UK's largest independent construction and property services providers, has moved into new offices in Leatherhead to serve the South East, as well as an office in Longbridge, in Birmingham, to cover the West Midlands.
Midas has seen its Southern Division develop into a £50m+ a year business and has offices in Southampton from which it is already delivering on several major developments in the region, including large schemes in New Malden and Seaford, near Brighton. Opening the new Leatherhead office forms part of Midas’s aim to establish itself as the contractor of choice in the South East.
Expansion into Birmingham is a direct result of customer demand for Midas to extend its operations into the Midlands.
Alan Hope, Chief Executive of The Midas Group, said: “Our partnership approach and industry leading customer service and performance means we’ve been asked by more and more of our clients to move up into the Midlands. The new Birmingham office is a direct response to that demand.
“In the South East we have experienced strong growth in recent years and we see significant potential with the establishment of a new regional headquarters to further grow the business in this area.
“Our Vision at Midas is to be leaders in customer service and performance and to be recognised as such by our customers, potential customers and the wider industry.
“It is a strategy which is already showing success and we now have more than 75% of our projects being carried out on a repeat business basis. This not only says a great deal about our relationships with our customers and our strong track record of delivery but gives us confidence in the potential for further profitable growth and geographic expansion of the business.”
The Birmingham office will come under Derek Quinn, Midas Executive Director for Wessex, Wales and the Midlands. The Leatherhead office will come under Paul Strachan, Divisional Director for Midas in the South East, who successfully developed Midas’s Southern Division, which will now be led by Peter Whitmore, who recently joined the business as Divisional Director for the Southern region.
