Ripponden-based servicing specialist JLA Group is introducing a new brand capitalising on its core service areas of catering, laundry, infection control, heating and ventilation and fire safety.
As part of the company’s growth, it expects to recruit 50 roles nationally in the coming weeks, with opportunities available to those wishing to join as an employee, or through JLA’s recently-launched apprenticeship programme.
Christina Larkin, the group’s chief data and marketing officer, said: “We’re really excited for 2022. We’ve invested time and resources into creating our new brand but it’s about much more than a new look and feel.
“We are putting our customers at the heart of all that we do, to create a business that works for customers, colleagues and the communities in which we operate.”
Steve Leyland, field operations director at JLA, added: “We are proud to be JLA, proud to be the leading provider of business-critical equipment and proud of the complete service we offer our customers.
“Through JLA, our customers can have peace of mind knowing that we will look after their critical equipment. With our five core services, we’ll take care of it while they focus on what is really important to them – ensuring their guests, residents and clients have hot, running water and hot, properly cooked meals, a fire-secure building, hot and cold temperatures as required, reliable equipment and a hygienic and germ-free environment.”
Over the past 2 years, JLA has acquired several fire safety and heating and air conditioning businesses across the UK. With nearly 50 years’ experience, the company now has a national team of 450 engineers serving more than 25,000 customers at 40,000 sites including care homes, hotels, pubs, restaurants, housing associations, schools, hospitals and government and custodial premises.
