A roofing contractor is back under independent Norfolk ownership after its directors completed a management buy-out.

Aspect East Anglia, which trades as Aspect Roofing, has a trading history of more than 40 years and employs 30 staff from its base in East Harling.

Managing director Paul Elliston and directors Matthew Dillon and Richard Colley bought the entire shareholding from Somerset-based Bradford & Sons Ltd, which acquired the company in 2012.

The part of the company which designs, manufactures and supplies roofing truss and rafters has been retained by Bradford and Sons under the name of Crendon Timber Engineering.

Aspect Roofing is a specialist roofing contractor with a turnover of around £4m, and can trace its roots to Watton in 1972. It then moved to larger premises in East Harling where it established its timber engineering and trussed rafters business.

Mr Elliston said he and his fellow directors were 'absolutely delighted' to be the new owners and underlined the commitment to the company's staff, suppliers and customers.

'With established relationships continuing to lead to a strong forward order book, and a buoyant market, we are seeing a significant increase in the level of enquiries for both the new build and refurbishment sectors,' he said.
