Bristol-based Siniat is upping its recruitment efforts following a string of new business wins.

The plasterboard manufacturer has secured new business in the last month resulting in a reinvigorated recruitment drive, with 28 new positions now available with the company.

In February, the business secured some landmark projects to add to its portfolio, including a contract with Interserve to deliver on five new schools. Other contracts include a £1m project with Galliard Homes to deliver fire retardant plasterboard to a new development on the Isle of Dogs, London, and a partnership with McLaren to support Banbury Gateway, a new £80m out-of-town shopping centre near Oxford.

Siniat will also be working with Willmott Dixon on two separate projects, a £45m redevelopment of Beneden Hospital in Maidstone, which will include new medical facilities, new operating theatres and an MRI unit, and the delivery of a new ‘super school’ in Ceredigion, which will accommodate 1,000 primary and secondary students.

Neil Ash, managing director at Siniat, said: “We’ve secured an enormous amount of new business already this year thanks to the quality of our products, and our proactive approach to solving our customer’s problems. This trend is likely to continue, with healthy growth expected in UK construction this year.”

“If we’re making and selling more plasterboard across the UK, it’s a clear indicator that the construction market is on the up. We’re continually looking for bright new talent to help us continue to meet demand. Our success comes from understanding the needs of our customers and developing products that make their lives easier and their businesses more efficient.”
