Security and FM specialist Ashridge Group posts 98% year-on-year turnover increase

Ashridge Group, the Buckinghamshire-based security and facilities management company, has posted an impressive 98% increase in year-on-year turnover as part of a considerable growth curve. Underlining the business’ continued growth and expansion across the UK, this enviable financial progression has been paralleled by an internal drive to solidify its position in the UK security and facilities industry.

Emma Walker, operations director, explained: “It has been an incredible year for the Ashridge Group, both financially and in terms of our evolution as a business. We’re extremely encouraged by our year-end financial results. Our growing physical footprint across the UK substantiates this further. A huge part of what we do involves nurturing our people, so I would like to extend a Thank You to all of our teams and individuals who’ve been part of our success story so far. We’re extremely excited to see what the future holds for Ashridge Group.”

Ashridge Group has also been driving internal initiatives to strengthen its position as a top employer, encouraging employee feedback, team cohesiveness, reward strategies and learning and development opportunities throughout the organisation.

With ambitious growth plans strategised across the coming years, Ashridge Group will be looking to further its national expansion by securing new contracts and continuing to develop its workforce.

Ashridge Group’s services range from property/site maintenance and facility management through to security solutions, risk prevention and security consultancy. The company celebrates its fifth anniversary this year.

With a workforce of around 100 employees, and a large client base which spans a number of different industry sectors (including further education, the utilities, manufacturing, rail, corporate and heritage sites and more), Ashridge Group has continued to grow year on year, subsequently penetrating new markets across the UK.

“We’re excited to reach this milestone as an organisation,” added Emma Walker. “It’s testament to all the hard work we put in across the business, right through from grass roots level to the top. It’s rewarding to see continued growth and scalability, and we’re very much looking forward to further developing our strategic vision for the future.”
