It’s Our Bread and Butter Work!

Industrial sheeting and cladding experts Midas are On a Roll!

The industry leaders are underway with some real "bread and butter" work, working on new cold store panels for near-neighbours, On a Roll Sandwich Company.

An eight-strong Midas team, supported by four members of management, are working on the seven-week project through a contract with Meldrum Construction Services.

Having recently worked with Gateshead-based Meldrum at the city’s St Thomas More’s School, Midas began work in February installing a full external envelope and external cladding for On a Roll’s new 700,000 square metre cold store panels.

The £500,000 contract sees Midas staff working within a stone’s throw of their Middlesbrough premises on Riverside Industrial Estate, cladding On a Roll’s major new facilities.

Midas Managing Director Martin Gilbey said: "It’s fantastic to be working with Meldrum on such a big job – and a real bonus to be helping a fast-growing company that’s right on our doorstep.

"Meldrum are becoming big movers in the industry, so it’s clearly good news to be working on another great project together. It’s really about good businesses finding one another and creating a synergy, rather than simply looking for the cheapest job.

"I believe the key to winning such an important contract is down our absolute commitment to quality and safety. Meldrum know they can rely on Midas to deliver a first class job on which we will employ dedicated, highly-skilled staff.

The cladding for the project has been delivered in seven lorries ready for Midas staff to start installing an external micro-rib panel and internal cold store panels.

The project is also good news for local firms, with Midas providing work to Teesside firms Netting Services, Project Scaffolding & J Hewitt Crane Hire.
