One of the fastest-growing firms in Wales has relocated to larger premises at Mamhilad Park Estate as it closing in on completing a management buyout.
Having reported growth of 258% between 2018 and 2020, J2R Demolition is now a £3m business employing a team of 19, as well sub-contractors. The company has moved from Blackwood to Mamhilad Park Estate in Pontypool, taking 600 square feet of office and over 17,000 square foot of industrial space.
The company, which was ranked one of the fastest-growing indigenous firms in 2021 when it made the Wales Fast Growth 50 annual list with a ranking of 10th, J2R was established by Jonathan Williams and Robert Morris in 2017. A management buy-out will see director Jonathan Williams solely taking the business forward whilst co-director Robert Morris will continue to lead a portfolio of other construction businesses in South Wales.
J2R Demolition uses traditional and modern demolition methods including robotics to complete work on site for a client base that includes local authorities, tier one contractors and privately owned businesses.
Services include internal strip outs, full demolition, structural alterations, fire damage, asbestos removal, robotic demolition and contaminated site clearance. The company also carries out excavation and site preparation works for clients throughout Wales and the south west of England.
Managing director Jonathan Williams said: “J2R has grown significantly over the last six years so we knew it was time to reconsider our structure and our location. We’re proud of our achievements to date and I know that Rob will continue to support us moving forward while our new premises gives us a great opportunity to invest in our future. It’s an exciting time for us all.”
Peter Downes, operations manager for Johnsey Estates UK, owner managers of Mamhilad Park Estate, said: “With over 180 occupiers on site at Mamhilad, this is a business park that is home to a variety of different businesses. J2R is a great example of how we can work with our occupiers to offer a flexible and tailored approach to work space requirements – in this case, a mix of industrial and office space.
We’re delighted to have the team here and wish them every success with the next phase of their journey.
