Stirlin celebrates 16th birthday

Stirlin marks a significant milestone today as we celebrate 16 years in business, with completed projects totalling over £70m.

From humble beginnings as a uPVC window fitter, our owner, James Kirby, co-founded Stirlin in October 2007, with the passion and determination to turn it into what it is today.

In 2008, we acquired our first plot of land at Saxilby Enterprise Park. This marked the beginning of our very first project – a 15,000 sqft commercial office and warehouse, now occupied by Orderwise. The economic climate was uncertain at the time, but we persevered and managed to successfully deliver a profitable project, even amid the challenges.

This project set a high standard for our future endeavours and laid the groundwork for further expansion.

James took sole ownership of the company in 2014, a key moment that paved the way for our growth. Since our first project at Saxilby Enterprise Park, we’ve undertaken a diverse range of projects across Lincolnshire and beyond, delivering over 330,000 sqft of commercial property and 55 new homes.

Our portfolio spans a variety of sectors such as commercial, industrial, residential, and most recently, education, after securing a new contract for Kedleston Group to carry out the expansion and refurbishment of one of its specialist educational centres: Arc School Ansley, in Nuneaton.

We are proud to have developed a strong reputation for our craftsmanship over the years, with a focus on quality and attention to detail. We combine our extensive experience with a passion for delivering excellence, an ethos that has consistently defined our projects.

Today, we operate as a multi-divisional group, encompassing construction (Stirlin), residential homes (Homes by Stirlin), plumbing and heating (Stirlin Plumbing & Heating), and plant machinery sales and services (Stirlin Plant), with a growing team of talented individuals, driving our overall success.

Our developments now house hundreds of residents and thriving businesses, supporting our local community and contributing to the economic growth of our county.

James Kirby, Owner and Founder of Stirlin, says “Turning 16 is a significant milestone for us, particularly as we embark on a new chapter of the business by actively seeking external contracts. With a promising pipeline of projects, ambitious growth plans, and a talented team, Stirlin is set for an exciting future.”

“Thank you to the entire Stirlin Group team for their dedication and to our valued clients and partners, who continue to support us. Here’s to building even better communities in the years to come.”

With a variety of exciting projects in our pipeline, we’re ready to embark on new ventures. If you’re in search of a trusted construction partner for your next project, please don’t hesitate to get in touch: info@stirlin.com or 01522 682752.
