“Since moving to Seaham we have have been afforded an amazing welcome from the local community. In the relatively short time that we have been here, we have built lasting relationships with the local authorities, business groups, media teams and charities.

“More importantly however, we have built a great team of whom we are really proud of. As the business continues to grow, our team is growing with us, opening up many career opportunities for people in the area.”
