Norse impressive growth continues

January 2018

Barnsley Norse parent company Norse Commercial Services has added over £16million of new growth in its current financial year and won over 230 new contracts. 



Sales Director Geoff Tucker says that new business is coming across all the company’s divisions and its partnerships with local councils around the country.

“We are seeing sustained growth throughout the company, with cleaning, catering and grounds maintenance all showing a strong start to the new financial year,” he said. “Our partnerships with local councils are regularly winning new contracts in both the private and public sectors, and our local authority partners are continuing to benefit from increasing profit share.”

Norse, which provides a wide range of contract services, including building and grounds maintenance, cleaning, catering, security services, refuse collection and waste management, operates 16 local authority partnerships, and had a turnover of almost £200m in the previous 12 months trading.

“We now have a forward order book in excess of £2 billion, based on sound, commercially viable agreements,” Managing Director Dean Wetteland confirmed. “That means we have long term financial strength and, significantly, can provide continuity of service for clients, and job security for our 10,000-plus staff. Whilst many of our competitors are experiencing difficulties in a very challenging market, Norse is powering ahead.”
