A METALWORK company whose work has featured on television is doubling in size and recruiting additional staff.
TaylorHood Metalworks, in Sunderland, which makes architectural sculptures, staircases and canopies, is taking on five workers to keep pace with demand.
Since setting up two years ago, the business has grown consistently. It recently provided all the metalwork for BBC1 drama The Paradise, which was filmed at nearby Lambton Castle.
The firm was established by Chris Taylor and Neil Hood, who have nearly two decades experience of the metalwork industry.
Mr Hood said: “For the first six months, it was just me and Chris, but since then, it has grown massively. It has certainly surpassed all our expectations and targets. Our workload and order book keep increasing all the time.”
