The Company was started in 1983 by the Managing Director Kevin Thulborn. It was his vision to provide a high quality service to the Civil, Highways and Public Sectors, through various changes they quickly became involved in cyclic maintenance including grass cutting, Traffic Management, Arboricultural works and grounds maintenance.
KJT Group has now built up over 30 years experience maintaining Britain’s highways and provides a comprehensive package of landscaping and soft estate management services, from site clearance, grass cutting and new scheme planting, to arboriculture, cyclic and ground maintenance.
No job is too large or small − from regular swathe cutting and sign cleaning for local authorities, to major landscaping projects such as our recently completed M27 Junction 5 improvements, which involved 20,000 square metres of grass seeding, and the planting of over 6,000 trees.
Our manufacturing facility is at the forefront of new technology developments which have been proven to boost productivity, reduce labour costs and improve operative health and safety. They include our barrier strimmer which is 98% effective without the need for manual labour.
As a team we take great pride in the quality of our work and are always sensitive to the local environment in which we operate. Client satisfaction is reflected in our long service record, including our 12 year relationship with Bovey Tracey Council and our 25 year partnership with South West Highways and Balfour Beatty to maintain the A30/A35, which has just been renewed for an additional 7 years.
With over 1000 items of plant and equipment, ranging from hand-held strimmers to 44-ton lorries, KJT Group provides a comprehensive hire service to meet individual customer requirements.
Our fleet of over 150 Traffic Management vehicles includes state of the art Crash Cushion Vehicles equipped with side scan CCTV to detect road users and operatives, in line with TFL (Transport for London) regulations.
In fact, 80% of our entire fleet is less than three years old, ensuring that we not only meet all the latest safety and emission standards, but also the needs of our clients for the most fuel efficient and reliable equipment solutions.
