Prior to becoming a Facilities Management Provider, Dovetail had decades of name recognition and a great reputation under the stewardship of Lee’s Father as a plumbing, heating and carpentry provider, operating predominately as a one-man outfit.However, after leaving the West Midlands Police force in 2010, Lee decided it was time to put his previously untapped entrepreneurial spirit to good use, by register Dovetail Facilities Management as a limited company in order to deliver soft services in the Midlands Area.
Over the next few years, Dovetail FM continued to add a range of hard and soft services to our scope of delivery, adding key accreditations along the way and moving to new operational bases to handle our increased output.
One of the more major shifts in 2015 was to bring our Aboriculture works, which we had previously sub-contracted, in-house, by registering Dovetail Tree Services as a limited company, in partnership with Mark Cattell, one of the region’s most respected arboriculture contracts managers, who services as Environmental Director today.
In 2016 – We began trading under Dovetail Group (UK) – a necessary adjustment due to our extensive growth. By departmentalising the company, we were able to pursue more major clients, securing flagship contracts with the likes of OCS & Belfour Beatty and moving into the construction sector.
This has afforded us the ability to train our operatives with a range of workplace training courses and keeping our workforce compliant and in line with industry best practice.Our head instructor is now delivering our excellent rated training courses to a host of businesses in our industry and others.
We believe that our beginnings as a family business have encouraged us to remain grounded and continue to deliver our services based on our core family values. Evidence of this is having retained our first ever client, delivering works on our first ever site to this date.
And also, in investing in our staff, with our first ever employee, Luke Rawlings, now doing an excellent job leading our grounds division as Operations Manager, after nearly 9 years with the company.
Dovetail Group are now a Nationwide Contractor, & the business is going from strength to strength. A key area of growth having been in London & The South East, where we now have an office and operational base supported by a team of talented team of account managers
