Durham based business J.E.M. Road Construction Limited today announced expansion plans with the purchase of new premises with funding from Barclays.

We’re a family run business and this is a significant step which will secure the future of the business and take us to the next stage in our growth. The funding from Barclays has not only allowed us to purchase the new premises but it will also help our growth plans providing more capacity for new contracts and customers.”
