+24 on track for best-ever year

Burnley-based digital technology firm +24 has achieved 50 per cent growth in the last quarter and is on course for its best trading year to date.

The growth follows more than £100,000 of investment, including the recruitment of additional skilled technicians.

+24 has maintained contracts with existing, long-standing clients including Ansell Lighting, Calico and IT recycling company Tier 1.

The team has also begun a new project with Burnley Together, a new partnership between Calico, Burnley Council and other agencies, to urgently address issues created by the coronavirus pandemic.

Dave Walker, managing director, said: "They needed an online presence so we designed and developed a website for Burnley Together that went live within 48 hours. We have the in-house expertise and flexibility to turn things around very quickly.

Dave also predicts that there will be future job creation within the company as it nears £1m in annual turnover.

He added: "Its been a very difficult six months for everyone, employers and staff alike. Thankfully, we were able to respond early to make the changes that were vital to ensure the business has remained buoyant and successful.

"We have been agile in our response to our customers and forged new relationships with businesses by listening to their needs and responding appropriately. It has led to some fantastic new clients."

"Britain could be in for a brighter future than economists predict if more small businesses adopt a more positive, dynamic and agile approach in order to emerge stronger than ever before."
