Welcome to the Spring 2015 issue of the Finley Structures newsletter .
As always , there are lots of exciting developments to talk about as the company continues to thrive . We ’ re winning new contracts , some of which are with new contractors as we successfully expand our client base . On page 3 , you can see how we recently won a 2,300-tonne job from Sir Robert McAlpine ' s Manchester office to work on the Victoria Gate shopping centre in Leeds . We have also won a major contract with Galliford Try - a company we ' re working with for the first time - to construct the steel frames for five schools in the North East . On top of that we have recently completed a 620-tonne contract for Interserve at the AMRC Factory in Sheffield and we ' re also currently working on a 140-tonne warehouse contract for neighbouring Stiller Warehousing and Distribution in Newton Aycliffe . Other contracts include a 170-tonne job for Britcon at the AMP Technology Centre in Rotherham , South Yorkshire , and another school contract for Bowmer and Kirkland at Allestree in Derby . Meanwhile , on pages 4 and 5 you can read how our very own leisure facility in Newton Aycliffe - ROF 59 - is coming along . It ' s certainly an exciting venture for the Finley family and one which John in particular is very passionate about , as we try to preserve a very important piece of Newton Aycliffe heritage which is right on our doorstep . We recently hosted a visit by some of our local Durham County Councillors to ROF 59 . One of them , Cllr Jed Hillary , told us how his parents - Bob and Millie Hillary - met in Aycliffe after working there during hostilities . Bob was stationed here with the Army guarding the factories and Millie worked in the Ordnance Factory . That is just one story , of course . More than 17,000 people worked in the factories during the war , so Aycliffe - despite the new town being young - does have a lot of history , having played its part in the war effort , and that ' s why we feel it ' s so important to retain that history . I hope you enjoy reading this issue . Regards Julie Managing Director
