JT Atkinson and Sons expands to Richmond and Thirsk

Published:  17 January, 2013

JT Atkinson and Sons is expanding with two new branches this year in Richmond and Thirsk.

Edwin Atkinson, managing director said: "We have steadily expanded over the last ten years averaging two branches a year and 2013 will be no different.

"In September we recruited our 200th member of staff so we thought it about time to formalise our human resources management team."

As well as staff in the new stores, the building merchant is also recruiting at its head office in Middlesbrough.

Positions required include a human resources manager, marketing co-ordinator and purchase ledger assistant, as well as a manager for the new Richmond branch and an assistant manager at Northallerton.

The company is one of the oldest family run companies in the region. Established in 1860 it is still managed by members of the sixth and seventh generation of the Atkinson family.
