Soft services provider, A&R Services is set for an almost 50% increase in staff this year, following the recent announcement of a Management-Buy-Out.
Based in Bridgend, the business has seen significant success year-on-year, closing 2021 as the sixth year of consecutive growth.
Now with ambitious plans for 2022, A&R is planning to create 150 new jobs across south Wales and the south west of England as the business looks to expand its footprint further across these regions.
Co-founder and Managing Director, Ashley Davies said:
“After announcing the MBO at the start of the year, Dora, Chloe and I are delighted to share our ambitious growth plans for A&R, with a number of exciting initiatives in the pipeline for the next 12 months alone.”
The creation of 150 jobs will take the business to c.500 employees and will see the new management team on track to exceed a turnover of £5m this year.
The business has already been shortlisted for a number of awards this year, including Cardiff Life, of which A&R is the incumbent winner of the Business Services award, and the national St David’s Awards which recognise extraordinary achievements across Wales.
Operations Director, Dora Vasarhelyi added:
“We are thrilled to receive continued recognition for the business’ growth and success. This is testament to the hard work of our team and the ability of us to adapt and overcome the challenges of recent years.”
A recurring ‘sustainable growth’ winner at the Fast Growth 50 awards, 2022 is set to be no different for A&R Services, with plans on track to make it another remarkable year of growth and success.
