Why Sandwell?

The construction sector is fundamental to Sandwell’s economy as we invest in our future. Up to £1.8bn of investment is planned between 2022 and 2027, funding regeneration projects across our six towns: Oldbury, Rowley Regis, Smethwick, Tipton, Wednesbury and West Bromwich. With Sandwell Council’s commitment to responsible and local procurement, opportunities are plentiful for construction firms in the borough.

Sandwell’s construction sector is also rich with opportunities to upskill and reskill local people – and with 40 per cent of our population aged under 30, we have a bright and dynamic future workforce.

Your company … in great company

Founded in the 1960s, Wade Building Services in Tipton is one of the largest independent suppliers of construction materials in the UK.
