FIFE family business, J Todd Plant Services Limited, is making a name for itself across Scotland as it continues to grow its agricultural and plant maintenance business. Launched in January 2020, Jamie Todd, a former, mechanical engineer in the oil industry, and his partner Ruth, took the leap to start their own business. They soon built up a great reputation offering an all-round service that covers sales, preventative maintenance, hire and welding and fabrication.
Initially based in Glenrothes, the small but growing business soon outgrew its facility and has recently relocated to new larger premises in Auchtermuchty, a location which suits the company’s needs perfectly. Demand has meant the business has now increased the number of employees to six, with another joining the business soon. Jamie reached out to Business Gateway Fife for advice as they needed support and guidance on contracts, compliance and policies.
Business Gateway Fife’s HR adviser, Catherine Bartle said: “We were able to support and advise Jamie on recruitment, contracts and compliance, while signposting him to other services including NHS Fife on Health & Safety in the Workplace. Most recently, we have been able to secure Expert Help for the business around ISO standards. Jamie has already built a great name for himself over the last few years, which has enabled him to win larger contracts despite being a small and relatively new business. I think the personal attention the company provides stands out over bigger companies providing similar services.”
Director, Jamie said: “We provide a fully comprehensive service to businesses, and we specialise in providing the highest quality plant machinery solutions to construction, agricultural and plant hire firms throughout Scotland and are totally committed to providing a bespoke service for all our customers. I am very grateful to the support and advice we have received from Catherine at Business Gateway Fife. It has allowed us to focus on the growing the business and settling into our new location.”
