“Liverpool is a thriving city with an abundance of growing businesses. This means there’s plenty of opportunities for us to showcase our services and demonstrate the commercial benefits we can bring to these businesses.”


Forhsaw added: “We’re proud of our comprehensive service offering and want as many businesses as possible to know about our capabilities. Bringing Paul into our sales team, with his broad industry experience and endless enthusiasm, will help us to grow our order book and we couldn’t be more pleased to have someone of his calibre in the business.”
