Modular specialist Thurston welcomes three new directors

Yorkshire-based modular building manufacturer Thurston Group has welcomed three new directors to its executive leadership team.

The new directors will help guide the business as it works to grow its position in the British modular construction industry.

Gary Ware is promoted to group production director, Gary Robinson to construction director, and Matthew Petch takes the role of financial director.

Commenting on the new appointments, Matt Goff, managing director, said: “We have an incredibly talented and driven team here at Thurston Group, and this is recognised in these board appointments – all three of which are internal promotions.

“Gary Ware has led our production services for several years and is an invaluable addition to the Board. Gary Robinson will further strengthen our strategic direction on construction, and Matthew will focus on driving our financial growth.

“Since joining the business in 2018, I’ve really promoted a culture of entrepreneurship from the factory floor through to the senior management team and our new directors have really embraced this culture, removing barriers to collaboration, increasing teamwork and efficiency, and driving change for the better throughout the business.

“I’m delighted to have them on the Board – we have big plans for the future.”

Design manager Marc Johnson has also been promoted to head of technical.

Thurston’s has more than doubled its turnover since 2018 – from £23m to a projected £55m by the end of this year.

Thurston Group was acquired by private investment firm the HLD Group of Companies in 2021.
