Sales have continued to soar for the Halifax based Transline Resource Group, which has announced a 22.8% leap in turnover to £54.34m.

The company, which specialises in recruiting HGV drivers and industrial workers, is a preferred supplier to many of the UK’s biggest household name retailers and distributors, and has maintained double digit growth for the past 4 years.

Between 2008 and 2010 the Group achieved a compound annual growth rate of 62%. The 2011 sales figure smashes the Group’s previous 2010 record of £44.25m.

Innovation, rapid expansion of its offices throughout the UK, the setting up of a new Technology division and a recent foray into markets overseas have all helped to drive growth for the company, which was set up in 1989 by joint managing partners Paul Beasley and Jon Taylor.

Between them the Group’s Driving and Industrial divisions supply a staggering 6000 flex workers per day to some of the most respected blue chip companies in the country.

During 2011 the business continued to drive expansion in both the North and South of the UK — opening new offices in Scotland, the Midlands, South West and South East.

The Group now employs an on-site management team of 120 core staff who are deployed at 54 client company locations.

In its Northern heartland, where the Group has a broad portfolio of clients in Greater Manchester, Lancashire, Merseyside and Yorkshire the company has developed and expanded its operations with existing clients and won many new ones.

Within the Driving division the Group recently invested in its own, branded ‘Driver Training Unit ’ERF cab and 40ft trailer which provides a mobile training facility for clients in all areas of the UK.

“2011 has been another year in which we have continued to forge ahead and maintain our position as ‘best in class’”, said Managing Director Paul Beasley.

“We have increased market share and achieved increased profitability by driving through cost efficiencies for our clients; by listening and acting upon customer feedback and by exceeding client expectations. We are particularly proud of our growing reputation for excellence in training and this has helped to deliver real added value benefits to our clients.”

Joint Managing Director Jon Taylor added: “Our success is further evidence that, in this current market, employers are looking for skilled, quality temporary workers who have been carefully selected and trained to the most exacting standards.”

A continued, upward rate of sales growth is predicted for 2012. This will be delivered through a business development strategy which includes expansion into new, key sectors and the further development of overseas markets into which the company has already made significant inroads.

“Whilst we need to be careful about client confidentiality and commercial sensitivities, our current operations and plans point to continued consistent and solid growth for our business over the next year,” added Paul.
