A director of a Denton-based building company believes its expansion into Warrington is a watershed that only marks the beginning of its growth. Garry Thomason, one of three directors of Granada Home Improvements, recently oversaw the move from its Denton unit to a high street branch in Warrington town centre, laying the foundations for further expansion in the future.
“This move has been a complete game changer for us – it’s a step in where we are going to be going in the future,” Mr Thomason said.
We’re now a professional business on the high street, providing something different in this day and age.“We have got 14 tradesman working for us and I am here every day – we were just at the stage where we were ready to put down some roots in Warrington.
“It’s a really nice place to work – I think often builders have a bad image, but we are trying to buck that trend.”
The business started as a small company ran by Thomason and fellow directors David and Craig Smith, growing in status before moving to a larger unit in Denton.
And after becoming increasingly active around the Warrington area, they decided it was time to expand and put a permanent office in the town centre at Friars Court on Barbauld Street.
