Exciting times here at Latham’s HQ! We’ve opened our doors once more, for a prestigious visit from Jan Britton CEO of Sandwell Council. In an event arranged by Bid Sandwell, Jan chose three companies to visit in recognition of their significant growth and investment in the region.
Continuing to Grow
At Latham’s, we’ve undergone substantial expansion in recent months, investing over £500,000 into creating new and expanding existing facilities at our Tividale site. We’ve also generated multiple employment opportunities with the workforce increasing from 9 to 37 members of staff. With the opening of a brand-new showroom, purchase of additional warehouse space and with the imminent launch of sister company Lathams Hardware new e-commerce website, we’re proud to continue to go from strength to strength.
As CEO of Sandwell Council, Jan Britton is keen to step into the community and see for himself the business culture within the Sandwell region. Speaking during the visit, Jan said “I was very pleased to visit Latham’s Security Doorsets last week. It was good to see a top-class Sandwell company in action and to understand how the business has grown, and continues to grow, so strongly. Sandwell Council is very interested in the success of local businesses and the more we understand about the needs of business, the more we can help.” Speaking of the event, Managing Director of Latham’s Alex Latham said, “We’re extremely proud to have been selected for a visit from Jan Britton. We’ve worked hard to continue investment and growth in the company, and it’s great to have the opportunity to share our story”.
During the visit, Jan was accompanied by Geraldine Thomas and Pat Parkes from the Bid Sandwell Management Team on behalf of Albion BID Co. Limited. Albion BID provide additional funding for specific development and improvement initiatives in the Oldbury and West Bromwich areas. They were on hand to offer their continued support to Latham’s during their period of expansion so it was a good opportunity to highlight the positive impact the scheme can have on businesses in the area.
