These teams are taking part in the Turning 50 Corporate Challenge between May 15th and July 4th. In this time, they must see what they can turn £50 into for Autism Anglia. Here's a bit about them.

Rose Builders


Rose Builders is a family-owned company, formed in 1995 and steeped in the tradition of building and customer service.

It is the company that evolved from H L Rose & Sons established around 1896 and trading through four generations into the current Rose Builders Limited.

The business was founded by Harry Rose, a bricklayer who came to Mistley in the 1890s. At the time Mistley had become a major centre of the late 19th-century malt industry and the expansion of the maltings buildings provided the basis of the business.

The business expanded into housing, and through the 1920’s and 30’s created many of the ribbon developments seen today throughout Mistley, Manningtree and Lawford.

Today, the company has a workforce of over 200, supplemented by specialist subcontractors. We work across a wide spectrum of sectors, including commercial, industrial, leisure, education, housing and healthcare and carry out new build, refurbishment and extension projects. Our residential development for sale is a rapidly expanding part of the business. We resource this from our direct labour force of skilled craftspeople, in-house joinery shop and plant division together with our supply chain.

We believe that the success of Rose Builders Limited is founded on a reputation in the community for high quality, traditional workmanship combined with our commitment to continuous improvement and innovation.

We ensure we deliver an exceptional product and excellent customer satisfaction.
