Azea’s record year
Local safety company Azea have just had a record year, bucking the trend and showing that locally based companies can perform well in the international market. Azea, who specialise in reducing accident rates in large high risk/high pressure companies, have seen the past 12 months bring a flurry of contracts and new opportunities moving forward into 2014.
South West Water, Kier, May Gurney and EON are an example of the business’s growing client list. ‘I’m very happy with the way the company has performed in the last financial year’ said Bruce Durham, Managing Director at Azea. ‘By investing in our staff, and encouraging relationships with existing clients, we have seen a large amount of referral work come our way, due to the results that we are delivering for long standing clients’.
Azea recently won a large contract to deliver communication training to over 150 supervisors on one of the largest water alliances in the UK. ‘We won the contract from one the largest training providers in the UK based on our reputation’ said Bruce. ‘Not only did we win the contract, but the performance feedback that our trainers achieved was over 15% higher than the last consultancy. Based on that, they have approached us to deliver more behavioural based training, which has allowed me to take on more local based safety professionals to meet the demand from all over the UK’.
Bruce himself has been asked to deliver safety key note speeches to audiences ranging from 200-1500 delegates, and has been asked to go to the Gulf Area to bring Azea’s skills to companies in this region.
Azea also won best stand at this year’s Safety Expo at the NEC in Birmingham.
