Europa Road is celebrating six months of success at its Sheffield Road branch, based at Broadfield Close.
Since its launch last September, the newly opened sales office has more than doubled its employment, turnover and gross profit figures, growing by 133 per cent.
Sheffield was chosen by Europa as the preferred location for a new Road sales branch to expand opportunities to provide collection and distribution requirements across the South Yorkshire region.
Nathan Lynn, branch manager for Europa Road Sheffield, 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.”
Alongside Nathan, who previously worked as Branch Manager at Europa’s Leeds office, the Sheffield team has six employees, who focus on providing sales support to a rapidly increasing list of customers across the South Yorkshire area. With growth expected to continue, Europa is predicting the size of the Sheffield team to double within the next 12 months.
Dionne Redpath, Branch Network and sales director at Europa, said: “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.”
The expansion into South Yorkshire allows the Europa Road division to tap into new customer markets within advanced manufacturing, presenting a wider opportunity for the company to boost growth and productivity.
Nathan added: “It’s still only early stages for the team and we plan to continue to drive sales forward by creating opportunities to work with new customers across the South Yorkshire region, whilst delivering outstanding results for our existing clients.”
