Exciting News! SSG Are Expanding Into Cornwall
- Date: Tuesday 5th March 2013
CORNWALL is the focus of the latest investment by SSG, with the recent acquisition of Safety Cornwall based just outside Truro.
The health and safety training and consultancy service provider, SSG, operates across the South West of England and hopes its latest move will help expand the services currently available through Safety Cornwall to include offering a number of accredited training courses.
Safety Cornwall currently employs six team members from across Cornwall, which includes a combination of consultants and administration support. SSG is looking to increase the number of employees in Cornwall to ensure that their ambitious plans to develop the business are achieved.
Mark Salmon, managing director of SSG, said: ‘Safety Cornwall’s core business has been to provide support to well over 200 clients from across the Duchy as retained health and safety advisors. Our intention is to very quickly set up and run a number of accredited training courses to ensure that we can offer them a complete service. These courses will also be available to all companies from across the Cornwall’
SSG already has offices in Plymouth, Wellington and Bristol and after acquiring a permanent base in Cornwall it hopes to be able to expand its services to those living in the area. Mr Salmon added: ‘This is an exciting move that will allow Safety Cornwall to continue to operate with the same team, same values and the same portfolio as it is has been but with the added support, infrastructure and services available through SSG. We want to ensure that our customers receive the very best service experience possible in the region.’
SSG currently offers training courses for all sectors including construction, manufacturing, industry and commerce as well as various consultancy and retained advisor services. Mr Salmon said: ‘The acquisition immediately expands SSG’s client base in the Cornwall region and opens up new market sectors specifically in the food, catering and hospitality sectors. ‘We are particularly keen to further develop these areas to ensure that SSG is recognised as the leader in this field.’
And it seems SSG’s expansion is not its only goal. Following the acquisition this week the company has already agreed to sponsor a community event being organised by All Saints Church Community Centre in Camborne later in the year.
