This has included substantial investments across the company, most notably in our people, working environments, ESG, processes and our operating platform.

Our commitment to doing the right kind of work has resulted in better delivery and improved profit margins.

A key indicator of our success is the remarkable increase in high levels of repeat business, which now account for 65% of our turnover, compared to 40% last year. This growth is indicative of our dedication to cultivating long-term customer partnerships.

To ensure sustained growth and efficiency, we have undertaken significant ongoing investment in our head office and core business support functions. We have positioned ourselves within the market to take on upcoming opportunities with the availability and mobility of the right people and teams”.

Also commenting Glencar Director and Cofounder Chris Gleave also said: “With an order book of £350 million already secured for 2024 we look forward to another encouraging year of growth to come.  Our commitment to innovation and the integration of smart processes and technology is on the rise, ensuring that we stay at the forefront of industry trends.

We are targeting 10-20% revenue growth in the next financial year. This ambitious goal is underpinned by our strategy of cultivating repeat business with our customer community while actively exploring strategic opportunities with new clients and in emerging markets.

Our success is based on our culture, our people who deliver the service and way of working. Simultaneously, we direct our investment towards strengthening our internal processes and training our people ensuring their resilience to provide both our customers and supply chain partners with the best possible service”.
