Stanley-based, multi-award winning, building and roofing specialist, Hodgson Sayers, has announced the appointment of Andrew Pinkerton as contract manager.

Andrew’s arrival follows that of Linden Blackwood as contract manager for the company’s Nottingham office, operating across the Midlands.

Andrew, from Stanley, has commenced work on a number of projects including the roof refurbishment to Grade II listed Darlington Library.

As a sign of its commitment to its people, Hodgson Sayers, which employs approximately 100 staff, was the first construction company in the North East – and only the second in the UK – to sign up to the National Living Wage.

Andrew Pinkerton, said: “Having taken a break from the construction sector to spend time with my family, I felt now was the right time to return. I firmly believe that construction runs in my blood and being from Stanley, I have been aware of Hodgson Sayers for years. It has an excellent reputation not just within the local area but much further afield.”

Managing director, John Sayers, said: “We warmly welcome Andrew to the team. He has the experience and knowledge to support our younger members and will add great value to our customer relationships.

“We continue to build on our national footprint and in recent months we have been involved in a range of roofing projects across the country, including work on behalf of Nottingham City Homes as part of a greener housing, energy saving programme and major roofing works and external building repairs to Grade II listed Kendal Quaker Meeting House.”
