WJ has secured a combined contract with Leicester City Council and Leicestershire County Council worth £1.5 million per annum over two years.
The company will carry out road markings for both local authorities and has an option for a further five years.
WJ has successfully serviced Leicester City Council since the mid 1990s and Leicestershire County since 2004.
Andy Stubbs, WJ commercial director for WJ South, commented: “This is my home patch and over our long period of service in the City and County we have been able to build up our people resource from local labour, creating new jobs and developing skills.”
“The foundation and success in operating these contracts and then retaining in the new format is without doubt due to the cooperation, hard work and dedication of our locally based crews and supervisors.”
The new contract commenced on the 1 May 2015 and WJ, from their satellite depot facility in Bitteswell, will deliver all road marking and road stud projects whilst bringing new products and processes all adding value and enhanced road safety to Leicestershire.
Chris Green, senior operations manager for Leicestershire Highways, said: “What impresses me most about WJ is their passion, high standards and integrated approach to all the many aspects of road marking delivery with a collaborative focus on client needs.”
