RAW keeps on growing .....
RAW Consulting, geoenvironmental consultants, recently reported its turnover figures for the year 2004/5. Tremendous growth is shown with a 65% increase on the previous year to almost £3 million. Clients from a variety of sectors such as insurance, oil/petroleum, property, solicitors, local councils, utilities, retail and others have contributed to this growth. Jeremy Randall, Managing Director adds: "This is an extraordinary achievement, demanding a great deal from the RAW team. They have not only maintained but actually strengthened our core values of quality, value for money and state of the art sustainable technologies."
To support this rapid growth, RAW opened its seventh office in Maidstone, Kent last month. The Kent office will offer geoenvironmental consultancy services and contaminated land investigation, as well as some associated services such as ecology and rapid response to oil, chemical and effluent spills.
Jeremy comments: "RAW has certainly come along way since we set the company up 6 years ago in a converted cow stall. We had room for two desks and a filing cabinet which filled the room. We now have seven offices across the UK and Ireland and over 40 staff!"
RAW's Head Office, based in Sandhurst, Berkshire has just had to move to larger premises again to provide more space for its expanding team. The demand for training is an aspect of the business that has grown in recent years and in the new office it is now possible to offer clients in-house training.
The environmental demands placed upon businesses are growing rapidly and in response, new specialist divisions have been established including RAW Remediation, RAW Training and RAW Ecology. Throughout this growth the ethos of RAW remains firmly rooted in what has been the basis of its success, which is valuing both their clients and employees.
