A CONSTRUCTION service company is building on its success and expanding into a new site near Thirsk.

The Leyburn-based Biker Group has opened a new depot on Dalton Industrial Estate with the creation of up to four jobs.

The family-owned company provides a diverse range of services to the construction industry, including haulage, ground works and bespoke joinery.

The expansion comes after a period of significant growth for Biker Group, which was established nearly 50-years-ago by company chairman Tony Biker, who has been joined in the business by sons Matthew, Ben and Sam. Sam will manage the Dalton operation.

Expansion over the last four years has seen the company increase its workforce to 172 following the recent creation of 65 jobs and it has seen a 133 per cent increase in annual turnover.

Biker Group estimates these additional jobs has directly generated an additional £10 million for the local economy over the last four years.
