A WEARSIDE asbestos removal company has moved to larger premises to cope with the growing demand for its services.
Safe Strip UK expects to more than double its turnover from last year after expanding its business into surveillance and management as well as the safe removal of asbestos.
Its new site at Easington Lane, near Houghton-le-Spring, will give the company the ability and flexibility to concentrate on strategic growth as it looks to expand.
At the moment the company has a number of clients in the North, including contracts with local government and health trusts, and carries out work for both domestic and commercial markets.
Once the new North East headquarters is established the firm is looking to increase its workload and take on further staff.
Michael Lupyna, director at Safe Strip said: “We started small but since we started in 2007 we have grown and gradually built up the business to what it is today.
“This new site has provided the company with a stable and solid platform from which to grow nationally. We are all very excited at the prospect of looking into new areas of operations and seeking opportunities.
“The surveying department is very close to receiving UKAS accreditation. This is expected to be granted late November early December which will almost certainly allow us to increase our personnel.”
The company was supported throughout the transaction by North East law firm Gordon Brown.
