Wakefield-based manufacturer, Thurston Group, is pleased to announce that it's now a member of the Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce (MYCC), an accredited member of the British Chambers of Commerce.
Thurston Group delivers high-quality modular and portable buildings through modern methods of construction (MMC) to every industry and market sector. Continually evolving its operation, the business is now one of the longest-standing and highest performing modular and portable buildings manufacturers in the UK.
Supporting local business for over 165 years, the MYCC exists to help connect, support and grow local businesses and benefits include new marketing, business engagement opportunities and a large number of events across the region.
The Chamber has three sub-divisions - the Halifax & District Chamber of Commerce, the Huddersfield & District Chamber of Commerce and the Wakefield & District Chamber of Commerce, to strengthen the local representation and support they can provide. This also allows the Chamber to recognise the individual needs of the businesses across the region and provides a tailored service so businesses can benefit from more localised networking events, conferences and business support services.
Thurston is currently building a brand-new social value plan which will see the business work with multiple local groups in the community to give back and improve the lives of those living and working in the local community.
Matt Goff, Managing Director at Thurston Group, said, “We’re delighted to be a member of the Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce and we look forward to getting involved with any upcoming networking events and conferences. Our mission extends beyond the manufacture of modular and portable buildings, and into the local communities that we serve.
Social value is an integral part of how we do business and we actively encourage social value contributions across the business by engaging with and supporting the local community, from charitable organisations to providing educational and employment opportunities across the North East and beyond through apprenticeships in manufacturing and construction."
