Midlands drainage firm soaks up new business to double turnover
A fast-growing drainage and exterior cleaning business is set to double its annual turnover after securing a wave of new clients.
Jet Through, which is headquartered on Birmingham Business Park, is set to end the year with an annual turnover of more than £1.4 million after securing work with well-known brands including Yo Sushi, Polygon, Boots and Gym Group – taking their client base to around 25.
The past year has also seen the firm investing around £250,000 in its infrastructure to lay the foundations for further growth, including 16 new vehicles with specialist jetting and vacuum equipment.
Services include the cleaning, unblocking, jetting and repair of drainage systems on commercial and residential properties, as well as specialist cleaning of gutters, sewers, walls and floors.
Luke Yates joined Jet Through as an engineer four years ago and is now an Associate Director, leading the day-to-day operations of the business with the support of Jodie Wilson as the Operations Manager.
He said: “I’m really proud of the way the business has bounced back so strongly from the pandemic when, like many other businesses, significant amounts of our custom fell away.
“In December, we are on track to more than double our annual turnover for the third year in a row – and that is testament to the hard work of our workforce across the UK.
“We’ve also developed a consistently high level of customer service – both due to the direct labour model that we run, as well as our ability to use cameras on our jobs to ensure that the cause of any issues are identified and resolved properly by our engineers.
“We are forecasting further nationwide growth again next year, when we hope to expand our presence working with housing associations, pub chains and public sector organisations.”
