Name change for 100% growth firm.

PROPERTY maintenance company Seddon Painting has notched up a 100% increase in turnover during the past five years.

The company, which has a key operation in Bootle's Canal Street, has seen revenues rise from pounds 25m in 2004 to pounds 53m.

Staffing has also risen from 600 to 1,000.

Now, to reflect the long-standing success of the business and significant advances into the property maintenance sector, the company has rebranded to Seddon Property Services for 2010.

Joint managing director Mark Brindley said: "This is more than a name change but reflects the natural development of the business.

"In recent years we have seen the property maintenance aspect of the business grow, supported by a number of refurbishment contacts with leading housing associations across the UK and a nationwide contract with Whitbread to maintain their Premier Inns.

"As a result, the new name better reflects the mix of the business, which will see the maintenance and refurbishment element represent 45% of our turnover in 2010."

And he insisted that staff development is key to the company's progress and each year the company makes a pounds 1m investment from its budgets for workforce training.
