FAMILY run building and construction conglomerate Heming Group is to set up a new plumbing services division, which will create five new jobs.

Trading for nearly 50 years from Willersey, near Broadway, it will now have four companies in its group. As well as major building services, which will incorporate the plumbing services, Heming Group will now comprise Heming Civil Engineering and Construction Contractors, Ford Electrical and Heming Agricultural and Plant Engineers.

Peter Heming, managing director of the firm, which operates throughout the Midlands and Cotswolds, said: “We have a really hardworking and dedicated team and by recruiting new staff and adding our new domestic plumbing service we are building even firmer foundations for the future. One of the trades we get asked about most is plumbing. A lot of our customers will already know that for many years we have been responding to emergency situations involving private and mains water supplies. We are delighted to introduce plumbing services as another string to our bow.”

Heming Group, which has more than 40 employees, is creating five new jobs for a plumber, project manager, administration assistant, estimator and air conditioning and refrigeration engineer.
