City TM | Major 2022 Investments Set Platform for 2023
City TM has transformed over the last 5 years into the Southeast of England’s most prominent traffic management contractors. A number of pillars underpin the company’s approach, and one of these pillars is regular investment as the company strives for better.
Investing in business is essential for its growth and success. By investing a business can increase efficiency & productivity, as well as be prepared for future trends and changes. City TM knows that one of the most important reasons to invest in business is to improve operations. This can include purchasing new equipment, hiring additional staff, and expanding product or service offerings.
Whilst City TM could showcase examples of all three, it’s purchasing new equipment the company focuses on here…
City TM has invested in 25 new Mercedes Benz Sprinter vans, to aid operational efficiency, as well as establish further potential for growth. The vans have been Purchased and purpose built to City TM’s bespoke specification.
The new vehicles will be split across City’s Urban and SRN divisions to ensure that its service delivery is not interrupted by having older and unreliable vans delivering Traffic Management, reassuring each City TM customer that they’re investing in their future and reputation, and not just their own.
The company appreciates the importance of investment, and, in 2022, has seen upwards of £2m invested into vehicles alone as the company has positioned itself as the leading traffic management contractor across the whole of the Southeast.
In addition to vehicles, a further £500,000 has been invested into other newer, upgraded equipment used by City TM across its contracts. Innovation is a growth word in the business and being one of the largest users of the Quick-lock signing system from Tennants has been one of their biggest equipment investments to date. Supporting their drive towards “reuse, reduce, recycle” this gives the business longevity and sustainability in the future.
One further very exciting investment is the plan to open a further depot in Surrey in 2023, a depot which would exclusively service City’s Urban works, giving them three HUB’s to access all parts of London and the Home Counties quickly and efficiently.
Director Mat Field told us:
“We wouldn’t be where we are now in terms of size, coverage, and reputation if it wasn’t for investing in the right areas of the business at the right time. It’s important that our client base see and understand that we value making what we already provide better and more efficient, just as much as the ambition to grow and reach new heights.
“2023 promises to be an exciting year as we identify further investment areas within City TM.”
