“Our continued success is testament to our team’s reputation of providing professional engineering advice, strategy and implementation across a wide range of industry sectors.”

Coun Holdich said: “Peterborough has a long history of successful engineering firms so it’s fantastic to see Rolton Group continue to go from strength to strength.

“Not only are they working with major household names on innovative engineering projects they are also investing in training up the next generation. I wish the company and all of their staff the very best in their new home and to a bright future.”

The Rolton Group now has 81 employees across three Midlands offices. The company has achieved continued growth year on year.

It recently announced a 13 per cent increase in annual turnover and multiple new client wins, including the UK’s fourth largest supermarket, Morrisons, as well as Nottingham Trent University.

To meet the demand, the business continues to train a future generation of engineers having taken on 12 graduates and three apprentices over the past year.
