Building a Solid Foundation Reputation

A change of name doesn’t bring a change of heart for South Tyneside company; TLC, with customers and quality still being at the heart of this family business.

APSĀ (Alteration property services) is a well-established construction company, based in Jarrow. Since 2005, the business has provided the North East with building and extension work, delivering an excellent standard of service by their friendly team. Now, to reflect their sustaining attitude to every project, the company has been renamed TLC , in illustration of the tender loving care they apply to every job.

TLC is also representative of the man who started the business, standing for Tony Little Construction. Tony Little used his wealth of experience in the construction industry to lay the foundations of his company. The company started life in Hebburn, but as the Little family grew so did the business. Employing more staff meant opting for larger premises in the TEDCO Business Centre and the rest, as they say, is history.

Tony tells us why he decided to change the name of his company, and what this means for the business:

I had been considering the name change for a while; APS reflected who we are as a business- and our plans for the future. We have always had a strong focus on having a close, friendly working relationship with our clients, and I thought it was about time that our name reflected this too! After some thought-and the added benefit of matching my initials-TLC was born!

Tony and his team will be living by their TLC persona. Still providing a high quality service as before the name change is sure to bring out the softer side of the construction lads. With more services now available, TLC can help construct sunrooms, conservatories and patios.

Bringing out the care TLC is determined to make their service hassle free with a new drawing service. Ideas big or small can be turned into the property of your dreams. They also have a care and support package in place for those who wish to work on their property, but need advice on the next step from experienced, knowledgeable individuals.

Tony reflects upon the choice of name, in relation to his industry:

I know TLC isn’t something people expect in the construction-but to us it’s our unique selling point, if you like! We want to show the friendly, personable side of the field, so that from the offset our clients know what to expect from us! I hope this will make our company appear as welcoming and as approachable outwardly, as we actually are when we work with our clients.
