The Sheffield sales office of Europe Road has seen turnover grow by 133% and employment double in the six months since it was launched.
Europa said it selected Sheffield as the preferred location for a new sales branch to expand opportunities to provide collection and distribution requirements across the South Yorkshire region.
Branch Manager Nathan Lynn said: “The results from the first six months speak for themselves -local customers are responding well and we feel confident that we’ve made the right decision in opening a new branch in the Sheffield area.”
The Sheffield office currently has six employees with Europa predicting the team to double within the next 12 months.
Dionne Redpath, Branch Network and Sales Director at Europa, comments: “We are delighted with the results after the first six months in Sheffield.
“There is a real positive culture within the new team and together they’ve been working extremely hard to create new opportunities and deliver consistently good customer service – showcased by the results we’ve seen already.
“We can’t wait to see what the next six months has in store for the team and if its success continues as planned, we can expect to see additional employees introduced.”
