MIDLANDS-based ecology specialist RammSanderson is celebrating its fifth birthday and has appointed 10 new staff at its Stafford office.

Founded in 2014 by Oliver Ramm and Nick Sanderson, RammSanderson has grown its turnover to £2 million and expanded offices by providing ecological consultancy, flood risk assessment and arboriculture services. The company now employs 43 people in offices located in Ilkeston, Sheffield, London and Stafford.

Growth of its client base in the West Midlands has led to the appointment of 10 new staff since April, all of them in the ecology division and support functions, ranging from graduates to experienced consultants. 

Director Anthony Mellor said: “We are building a fantastic team of knowledgeable and enthusiastic specialists and I am delighted to welcome 10 more additions to the Stafford office. We are strategically located to serve HS2 and other major projects that are taking place within the region which include new highways, enterprise parks, and regeneration projects, all of which will need environmental impact assessments and ongoing advice.”
