Since then the company has quadrupled its turnover and employed a number of staff. A second office was opened in Oban in 2010 and two further ones in 2016. Our area of operation now extends throughout the UK. Growth via reputation and referrals continues and we still have excellent client relationships, which were developed at the outset.
