Orchard Roofing

A new roofing business has gone from strength to strength since opening its doors in April 2016. Orchard Roofing took occupancy of Business Durham premises Unit 21, Stella Gill Industrial Estate in February 2016 and launched 2 months later.  The business was started by Directors Lee Nevitt and Joe Murray.

Lee had over 20 years’ experience as a roofer including over 10 years of running his own successful roofing business. Joe has over a decade of experience working in business support and had met Lee when he supported him with the setup of his original business.  

The pair felt that there was a gap in the market for a high quality, reliable and fairly priced roofing service that prioritised customer care and satisfaction.  It’s a formula that has so far worked well as Orchard Roofing has grown its workforce over 250% in the first 7 months growing to 8 full time staff as of October 2016.

The Directors have benefited from the support of Business Durham both in terms of the quality and availability of the premises and in terms of access to wider Durham County Council services such as their apprentice programme and anti-poverty programme both of which have been beneficial in securing staff in the quickly expanding team.

Joe has been very impressed with the service provided by Business Durham; "The team at Business Durham have been fantastic. They've went above and beyond to ensure that we could get moved in quickly and that the premises and suitable for our needs. We know that they are always available should we need any assistance." 

Both Lee and Joe are committed to growing the business within the County and hope to continue to work with Business Durham in helping to bring those plans to fruition.
