Hebburn-based Castle Building Services Organisation (Castle), one of the region’s leading building services design and installation specialists, has been recognised as an inspiring SME according to a recent report published by the London Stock Exchange Group.

The sizeable year-on-year increase in the 24 from the region that made the grade last year, clearly demonstrates that regional businesses are growing and able to lead the way in their given sectors.

Speaking about Castle being listed as an inspiring business, the company’s board of Directors said:
”We are delighted that we have been featured in such a prestigious report alongside other established North East based companies in the listing. Across all regions and all sectors, not least in construction, SME’s play a big part in the success of the local economy, reinvesting their profits in training and technology and creating local jobs.”
”Thanks to the efforts of the great team that we have in place, we have steadily increased employee numbers, expanded on the number of sectors in which we work and increased turnover year on year. I believe we are an inspiring organisation and look forward to building on our established reputation and continuing to drive innovation and efficiencies on each project that we undertake.”
The firms in the list have been praised by Business Secretary Greg Clark, who said: ”I want to congratulate the 1,000 companies from across the UK featured in London Stock Exchange Group’s pioneering 1,000 Companies to inspire Britain report.
