We are delighted to announce that we have been named Company of the Year for the Northumberland and Tyneside heat of the North East Business Awards.
We received our award at a glittering awards dinner on 22 February and now go on to the grand final against Teesside and Sunderland heat winners, which will be announced on 26 April.
The award is on the back of significant growth in recent years; in 2017 we achieved a 20% rise in turnover along with a 50% rise in profit after a number of improvements were implemented across the business. We expect growth to continue in 2018 with a forecast of £50 million turnover.
Tony Wells, Managing Director, Merit, said:
"We are delighted that the dedication and hard work of all of our staff has been recognised with this award. Our strength lies in the diversity of our business and the specialist experience and expertise of our teams. We continue to focus on the long term success of the business with continued investment in skills and an unwavering commitment to customer service."
