GARY BREACH: A REFLECTION ON 2022 AND AN INSIGHT INTO 2023
How would you summarise 2022?
As a business we have seen continued growth, with an increase of 15% in 2022 and 30% over the past 3 years. Our team has been instrumental in supporting and driving this growth when, like many businesses, we faced unprecedented challenges due to Covid. However, we took the decision to retain our workforce and with the recruitment issues businesses are facing, this decision proved to be critical in ensuring we had the right team in place to continue to deliver a high-quality service to our current and new customers.
What’s been your biggest business highlight over the past 12 months?
There have been many highlights but winning the Morgan Sindall Infrastructure contract towards the end of 2022 was definitely a standout moment. The company had been appointed Primary Contractor on Northumberland County Council’s new stations framework to build six new stations on the Northumberland Line. We went through an extensive tender process which was focused on local suppliers, community engagement and employing local labour in Northumberland. The contract we have been awarded is to provide daily cleaning services to the six sites across Northumberland.
