I joined the business in the wake of the LDC investment and it’s been a fantastic first year. The traction we’re making has been greater than we thought it would be. We’ve almost doubled the workforce in this time too which has meant we have brought in new talent to go alongside the existing skilled workforce.”

As soon as we met Gareth and Naomi at LDC, we knew that LDC was the right partner to support our growth plans. They have helped to bring in new experience and perspectives to our business, and it’s a real benefit that their Newcastle office is only a short distance away. We feel well supported to continue our growth from our base here in the North East.”
