The company’s catering, cleaning and trade waste management divisions have all seen particularly strong new business wins, with Norse recently announcing a £3 million cleaning contract for Barnet London Borough Council.
Sales Director, Geoff Tucker, commented: “The company has enjoyed a highly successful last nine months trading, with growth across all of our operating divisions and local authority partnerships.
“As a company, Norse has always been very conscious of the need to ensure any new business makes sound commercial sense. The importance of this approach has been particularly highlighted by the recent spate of problems amongst the major private sector outsourcing companies. Whilst continuing to be innovative and cost-effective in service-delivery, Norse’s public sector ethos also takes added social value, environmental considerations, and best practice into account alongside commercial sustainability.
“This has stood us in good stead over the 30 years we have been trading, generating industry-leading levels of retained business, a record low percentage of staff turnover, and a strong financial record.”
The group’s forward order book now stands in excess of £2.5 billion.
