CONSTRUCTION firm Mountjoy has built on its success over the past two years and expanded its headquarters in Portsmouth.

The company has doubled its turnover to more than £30m in the past 24 months.

Mountjoy, which employs 310 people and provides building and maintenance support services to public sector organisations in southern England, signed up to a 6,152sq ft end-terrace unit at Mountbatten Business Park, Farlington.

The firm, celebrating its 21st anniversary, already leases other offices in the same block at Jackson Close.

Clients include Portsmouth City Council, Southern Housing Group, which has 26,000 homes across London and the south-east, and the University of Portsmouth.

Hughes Ellard, based in Fareham, acted for the business park owner Ashtenne Industrial Fund.

David Redman, Mountjoy’s managing director, said: ‘With a doubling of turnover to £30.3m within 24 months, and a strong order book, including requirements from the private sector, the need to find more space became essential.

‘The whole block here at Jackson Close is now occupied by Mountjoy and we anticipate further expansion in the years to come, creating valuable jobs.’

‘We’re grateful to Hughes Ellard for ensuring as smooth a process as possible in the handover and keeping us updated – the firm is professional to the core.’

Mountjoy’s fleet now stands at 225 – the branded vehicles, a visible sign of growth, are a familiar sight on local roads.

Harnish Patel, a business space agent with Hughes Ellard, said: ‘Mountbatten Business Park is another shining example of a thriving business park in Portsmouth.’
