- Site Personnel
The ‘staff’ in the name Stosius and Staff is there for good reason:the construction company knows that their people are their backbone. Stosius has built up a stable team of committed site managers, foremen and leading hands. The same goes for the tradesmen, apprentices and skilled labourers — all multi-skilled, well trained, mentored and equipped to safely and successfully complete the widest range of projects. The Stosius site personnel are employees, permanent members of the team, not ‘contractors’ engaged for a one-off job only. They are the company’s best ambassadors.
- Administration Staff
As with the rest of the team, key administration staff have been committed members of the Stosius team for many years. This wealth of industry experience makes sure all client communication and documentation is professionally handled.
