TMGB | 12 months of growth and change leads to an exciting future
After 6 years of trading, national traffic management provider TMGB took a major step into a new era. 2019 saw the business develop it’s already successful service and stand on it’s own two feet after being an integral part of the former companies owned by Directors Jill & Steve Bennett.
As the business recently completed the first 12 months of it’s new era, we look back on the journey so far, as well as what’s in store for the end of 2020 and beyond…
Aug 2019 saw TMGB break out and MD Steve Bennett told us:
“That was a very proud moment to see the company emerge as strong and established to take on any form of Traffic Management, not just managed support.”
In order to enhance the quality service provided by the team, TMGB announced a new team member to lead the charge into the new era. Steve continued:
“Mick Martin is a great asset to the company and was a fantastic appointment. His years of expertise in the industry solidifies our team and enhanced our capability to expand our extensive service to more clients. Mick assesses our quality and fleet management and concentrates on developing innovative ways for TMGB to stand out from the pack.”
Collaborative Partnership with a key client…
Perhaps the first milestone of the new era.
TMGB partnered with MLP to provide their high-speed works on the Area 4 contract with Volker/Fitzpatrick.
From TSCO’s to delivering quality complex traffic Management for surfacing on the A27 TMGB’s superb commitment to the client secured this project.
2020 has seen TMGB focus on delivering traffic management directly to their clients, whilst also upholding its integrity when delivering their second to none support service to the TM industry.
The company is unique, servicing clients as the lead TM contractor on major schemes, whilst also providing managed support made up of complete crews and vehicles to other contractors.
TMGB relationships with their supply chain became bigger and stronger throughout 2019/20 as the company has made further strides with on quality service, sustainability, collaboration and innovation.
Key collaborative relationships are now well and truly in place, as TMGB continues to deliver on major schemes across the UK.
In 2020, the TMGB depot in Essex has seen a significant increase in workload in delivering the essential works on the highway network in London and the surrounding areas.
Both depots have been adapted to meet Covid-19 protocols, including additional PPE measures to make sure there is no spread of the virus whilst the company goes from strength to strength and continues to expand.
TMGB are set to provide traffic management services to an abundance of new and existing clients in the south towards the end of 2020 and into 2021.
Steve Bennett commented:
“Thanks to our teams dedication through lockdown our service has not suffered. We are here to support our existing clients and I’m delighted to be able to secure new contracts as we as a nation continue to navigate the pandemic and its ongoing effects.
“Whilst we have been fortunate enough to be in a sector that has been able to grow, our thoughts are with the many that have suffered loss and we cannot explain how sad we are to see such devastation to the world. We all know we are not out of the woods and no one can predict where we are going to be in a year. We just have to hold onto that community spirit that has held us all together over the last 3-4 months and God bless the key workers that have risked their lives to keep the country operating in this terrible pandemic.”
Commitment to service into 2021
The vision of the team is being guided by Steve and it is set to take 2021 by storm. The overall commitment to service is being tested by external auditors as TMGB continues to strive for improvement.
The TMGB app also has a new look. News feeds and alerts can now be seen on the home page to make sure the entire TMGB team know what is new in the way TMGB provides its ongoing improvements to clients.
Microsoft Teams has seen the business not only solidify the communication internally between north & south depots, but it has also enabled close communication with clients throughout a challenging time. As local restrictions are sure to come and go, the use of technology will be critical to world-class service.
With an eye on carbon footprint, TMGB is pledging to utilise Teams wherever possible for reasons other than those imposed by the government.
“We’ve worked hard to get the building blocks in place over the past 12 months. It’s a new era for us now and we look forward to working harder still to provide the best solution possible.”
