Supply Chain Recruiter Picks Up Public Sector Slack And Secures Bumper ASOS Contract In The Process
Driver and industrial recruitment firm, Transline Resource today posted financial results for its fiscal 2010 and in doing so announced a record turnover of £44m – an incredible 43% increase on the £25m turnover posted in 2009 which was also a record year. Now employing 95 staff, the company is delighted with the results and is predicting a prosperous 2011 to boot.
This time last year, Transline Resource Managing Director Paul Beasley vowed to maintain growth, diversify service provision and increase capacity by exceeding client expectations, listening and acting upon customer feedback and pursuing new company contracts. 12 months on and he’s confident they’ve not only achieved but exceeded those goals.
"After last year’s incredible success I’m thrilled to be here again reporting the highest sales revenue and profit in the company’s history," said Beasley. "At the start of the year we set out to sustain our 2009 growth throughout 2010, whatever the economic situation."
"During 2010 we appointed 30 more internal staff, introduced driver CPCs, launched our revolutionary real time dashboard monitoring system for clients and won several new contracts, including a bumper ASOS contract in Barnsley to supply 500 plus workers a day. We’ve consolidated our gains in 2009 and I see no reason why we can’t continue to grow in 2011 from this solid base."
Further developments included the 100% growth of its training division, driver CPC training roll-out, three new departments – IT, Sales and Communications, 30% more staff overall, sponsorship of local football team FC Halifax Town, finalisation of re-branding plans and the purchase of a new HQ – location yet to be announced.
Everything Transline-Resource has achieved has been against the backdrop of public sector cuts and great uncertainty in consumer spending.
Managing Director Jon Taylor said: "As soon as the economy began to falter we knew it would be a huge opportunity for a temporary agency like ourselves as clients looked for greater flexibility from their workforce."
"Temporary employees can offer just that. By continually diversifying our offering and improving our service levels we’ve been able to stay ahead of our competitors and increase our market share."
In 2010 the company has gone on to expand its client base across 35 plus on-site offices throughout the UK placing around 5000 workers in transport driver positions and general warehousing jobs. By the end of 2011 the firm expects to achieve turnover in excess of £60m.
Beasley added: "The temporary recruitment sector is as competitive as ever, which is why we’re particularly proud of these latest figures. Despite consumer spending being hampered by VAT rises and public sector cuts, we are confident that we will maintain healthy growth levels throughout 2011."
