A Staffordshire IT and technology company has created 15 new jobs thanks to landing a seven-figure contract with a national gym chain.
Fifteen Group has become an approved supplier for Anytime Fitness and has just completed its first installation for them in Totton, Hampshire, followed quickly by Stratford East London and Dublin, Ireland.
The contract win has also seen Fifteen Group move out of the UK for the first time overseas to operate in Ireland, as well as employing new engineers, and purchasing ten new vans for the field engineers.
It comes as the Parkhall based company celebrates its 15th full installation of a KFC unit, as well as it’s 40th Taco Bell installation in Chatham, Kent.
Last year they doubled turnover to more than £3 million pounds and profits and turnover look set to continue rising in 2019. At the end of last year, they also acquired Blythe Bridge based Pegasus Fire and Security Ltd as part of the group.
Director Rob Adams believes this acquisition helped them win their newest contract: “Having Pegasus as part of our team has enhanced our ability to innovate and extend our range of services. Being able to provide fire and security services as well as technology solutions were definitely factors in winning the Anytime Fitness contract.
He added: “Over the last two years we have embarked on a new era of growth with technology solutions to the Quick Service Restaurant Sector and franchise marketplace, our investment in Pegasus in 2018 has put us in a very strong position to grow even further.”
Fellow Director Ian Walker said: “It’s a really exciting time for us as a company. Our profits and turnover are increasing, which means we have been able to invest more into the business to help us grow. Our investment is already paying off and we are delighted to have won another big national contract, especially when it has seen us move out of the UK for the very first time which we are hoping to do more of in the future.”
