The Leeds-based civil engineering company has revealed it has increased revenues by nearly 15% and said it is well on track to add a further £5m turnover this year, which will mean it has effectively increased by 50% in just two years.
Over the past few years, CORE has gained significant credibility within the industry,” says Alan Cooper, Director. “In addition to new contract wins, our repeat business level remains consistent and strong which demonstrates our reputation and reliability. We continue to go from strength-to-strength with more opportunities on the horizon.”
