I set up the Wolverhampton Drain Doctor business in January and we’re already expanding our operations due to increased demand for our brand of excellent customer service. As a result I am recruiting a new fully qualified plumbing and drainage technician to join the team and we’ve added a new van to the fleet.
I commenced trading with a fully equipped plumbing and drainage service van working alongside one other technician. Since then demand has increased to point where I have had to add an additional van because we were finding that we were missing jobs because our resources were stretched.
Using the new van I am currently providing cover for technician Craig Murphy but I am recruiting another technician so that I can devote more time to effectively market the business. We have started a programme with Yell and we are in the Yellow Pages and I am investigating things like Google Ads. With a new technician on the team I will be able to devote more time to this and more proactive marketing activity.
We originally intended to be running three fully equipped vans by the end of 2010 and we are on course to achieve that. Looking ahead we will be moving into an industrial unit and adding further vans to the fleet as we grow.
