Meet our new Yorkshire Region Contracts Manager

John Booth is 34 years old and has worked in the construction and demolition industry for 16 years.

He began his career at the bottom of the ladder working for a diamond drilling company in the Midlands.  Here he started with basic drilling techniques; working his way through the different drills and sawing equipment, including robotic demolition machinery, to gain the experience and qualifications on the use of a diverse range of tools and technical drilling equipment necessary to advance his career.

He was lucky enough to then be given an opportunity to join a much larger construction group at a time when he wanted to progress into supervision and management.

“I began with assisting a supervisor on Birmingham New Street Station, a major demolition and cut and carve project,” said John. “This led me to becoming a full time supervisor looking after a group of 15 operatives.

“I progressed to becoming a project co-ordinator looking after the day to day running of jobs and operatives.  All of this experience made it possible for me to move forward with a new career within Holemasters, one of the market leaders in diamond drilling and other bespoke construction and demotion techniques.”

Holemasters Demtech has been enjoying a steady increase in business over the past few months and has taken on a number of operatives and managers across its 5 depots. John joined the Enfield team first then jumped at the opportunity to become contracts manager, alongside John Giles, for the Yorkshire team.

John continues: “I am now based in the Yorkshire depot managing  11 highly skilled operatives with a skill set to cover the following, but not limited to:

  • Diamond drilling
  • Construction
  • Demolition
  • Chasing works
  • Mining barrel drilling
  • Track sawing
    Hand sawing and chain sawing
  • Wire sawing
  • Robotic demolition
  • Bursting
  • Hand crushing
  • PTS works
  • Street works (civils)

“We work with a diverse national client base who have specific projects across the Yorkshire region. With Holemasters being one of the lead suppliers in the industry I am keen and determined to grow the branch from strength to strength.”
