J Tomlinson CEO Mark Davis
Expanding construction services company J Tomlinson has been named as one of Nottinghamshire’s top businesses in an annual poll – moving up nine places from last year’s ranking.
Working with the Industrial Economics and Finance Division of the Nottingham University Business School, the Nottingham Post has created a list of the top 200 companies in the county, based on turnover. It follows a similar exercise in 2015, carried out for the first time.
This year, J Tomlinson was ranked as 66th – moving up from last year’s 75th position.
The list was unveiled at the launch of the 2016 Top 200 Companies magazine at Nottingham’s Crowne Plaza Hotel, which was attended by J Tomlinson CEO Mark Davis, who said: “This list showcases the breadth of businesses within Nottinghamshire and highlights their importance on a local, regional, national and international scale in terms of the numbers they employ, the products and services they provide, and their key role in the economy. 
“As a Nottinghamshire company founded in the 1950s, J Tomlinson is proud to be named in the top 200 businesses in the county and delighted to have moved up nine places which reflects the steady and sustainable growth that we are experiencing as we continue to expand and increase our workforce.”
J Tomlinson, based at Lilac Grove, Beeston, increased its turnover from £42.5 million in 2013 to almost £51 million in 2014 – the year the rankings are based on. Since then turnover at J Tomlinson has risen significantly and is scheduled to be £84 million in 2016.
The company, which works across the West Midlands, East Midlands and Yorkshire, currently employs more than 400 people and offers services in construction, refurbishment, repairs and maintenance, mechanical and electrical engineering, facilities management, and energy efficiency and renewables.
Companies were eligible for inclusion in the listing if they are active (i.e. not in receivership or dormant), their registered office is located within Nottinghamshire and they report independent accounts.
The comprehensive list includes internationally known household names, such as Boots UK, who topped the poll for the second year running, vehicle retailer Pendragon in second place, and retailers Sports Direct and Wilko in third and fourth place.
It also features a number of J Tomlinson’s client, including W & J Linney, and suppliers, such as Michael Pavis.
