North Star Celebrate 10 Year Anniversary

North Star Celebrate 10 Year Anniversary

North Star was founded back in March 2009 and started trading in very humble surroundings during the infancy of the business, in fact the office was a converted garage at the time……..how things have changed 10 years on!!! The business has substantially adapted, developed and changed since its inception and will no doubt continue to do so in the years ahead. However, the core values of the business remain the same with long term trusted relationships with key clients and this focus will be constant for many years to come.

Finally all the staff at North Star would like to thank our Clients, past and present, for all the business we have been awarded over this period of time to enable us to reach this very proud milestone and we are positive that North Star will continue to go from strength to strength during the next 10 years!

One of our operatives, Woj Zywicki, recently attended a CITB Intermediate Setting Out Engineering course in King’s Lynn at the CITB Training Centre to further his expertise and knowledge in this particular area of Civil Engineering. Woj was on site for the week in King’s Lynn and completed the course with flying colours to add to his recently awarded SMSTS certificate.
