Warrington-based facilities management specialist, Westgrove Group, has recorded another year of strong growth, with turnover rising from £20 million to £25 million – and profits increasing by almost 30 per cent – in the 12 months to the end of December 2018.
The colleague centric business also added a further 200 to its workforce.
Westgrove provides security, cleaning and PRM (Persons with Reduced Mobility) services to shopping centres, corporates, business parks and airports across the UK.
Recent successes have included the launch of a Specialist Cleaning Division and a move into aviation, providing cleaning and PRM services to two regional airports.
Westgrove were also appointed by managing agents CBRE to provide the security for Birchwood Park in Warrington, the region’s leading out of town business location, and has enjoyed a number of new contract wins in Bracknell, Bristol, Liverpool, Dagenham, Swansea and Leamington Spa.
Claire McKinley Smith, Managing Director of The Westgrove Group, said: “We are always striving to improve the business and to grow through innovation, quality of service and by recruiting the best possible people.
“Remaining independent has been a massive strength. It gives a much greater personal feel to our business and we can offer a level of flexibility and transparency without compromising on service.”
The company says it remains firmly on course to become a £40million turnover business in the next five years and has exciting expansion plans forecast for the South UK later this year where over 50 per cent of its clients are based.
