A brick firm that has helped build thousands of homes across East Anglia has marked 20 years in the business.
Osborn Brickwork was launched in 1997 by Tony and Chris Osborn in Rackheath, and the firm relocated to Wymondham in 2002 after Jim Barrowman joined as a director.
The firm had a turnover of £5.5m in 2016, and carried out the brickwork on about 600 homes from King's Lynn to Ipswich, and works with developers including Hopkins Homes, Bovis Homes, Taylor Wimpey and David Wilson. Tony Osborn, who has run the company on his own since 2012, said he saw a bright future ahead for the company because the market was so buoyant.
He said: 'We have seen substantial growth within the industry, and there are no sign of that slowing down due to the ongoing demand in the housing sector and shortage of homes. I'd like to thank all our staff and contractors for their continued support.'
