A leading Lancashire transport logistics specialist which has been named as one of Britain’s top companies in the Inspire Britain report has announced record latest sales figures as it continues its growth path.
GBA Services, based in Preston, which also recently made it into the top 100 owner-managed businesses in the North West, reported an increase in sales of 35 per cent in 2018 against the previous year and expects to increase turnover by a further 20 per cent to more than £60million for the current financial year.
Chief Operating Officer Peter Zak said: “With many traditional markets shrinking, we expanded our services in retail and e-commerce sectors particularly with several blue-chip customers which gives us confidence for sustained growth over the coming year.
“At the same time, we are cautious as we make the transition through Brexit so we remain optimistic but focused.”
