Specialist recruitment company TechConsult UK has defied talk of recession by posting its best ever half-year figures.
The company, based in The Wilton Centre, operates within the offshore, fabrication and maintenance, process, shipbuilding and civil engineering industries.
It recorded a turnover of £1.4m in the half year ending in July, double the figure from the previous year. Gross profit in the same period went up 60 per cent.
The figures mean that the company's turnover is on target to hit £2.5-3m by the end of the year, up from £2m in its previous financial year, itself a record for the company.
TechConsult UK Managing Director Steve Guest said: "There has been a lot of talk of recession but some of the sectors in which we are working are buoyant and we are looking forward to the next few months with a renewed sense of confidence."
