Company founder and chairman Trevor Annon commented, "We announced our intention to achieve a turnover of £100 million by 2025 to mark our 30th anniversary at the end of 2018, and this latest year-on-year growth is in line with our forecast and predication that we will achieve this target.
"The Republic of Ireland marketplace is now a key target for us as we continue to develop our Dublin based service delivery and management team. Growing our market share from our Dublin base remains a key priority, and will be a major driver of overall company growth over the next five years, with cleaning and catering services in particular playing a significant role.
"We have increased our infrastructure and focused on strategic talent acquisition, and are now in a very strong position to capitalise on the opportunity to consistently grow our operations in Ireland.
"This latest figure of 30% growth in what is a competitive marketplace is encouraging, and a clear sign that we are bringing an attractive offering to the table."
