With Easter approaching, a Solihull-based construction firm that has diversified its operation into egg printing and supplies has announced that it expects to double its annual turnover this year by working with the Birmingham team of accountants and business advisory firm, Smith Cooper, to significantly boost sales.
The business launched as RSB Nationwide Ltd in 2004 as a small construction company, and has since broadened its offering by purchasing a poultry services company which initially installed and serviced egg printing machines across the UK.
As RSB Poultry Services, the business has worked with Smith Cooper to expand into egg printing equipment sales and customer care, printing consumables, and has become the UK agent for poultry housing equipment spares which has seen the business go from strength to strength.
Through increasing demand for egg printing services, the business expects to double its annual turnover to £1 million over the next 12 months whilst also doubling its staff number to eight.
The construction arm has also experienced strong growth. It has developed into a full-service domestic and commercial building operation covering major projects across the wider Midlands region, including the refurbishment of a large country house, building new apartment blocks and completing projects at Severn Trent Water.
To accommodate the growing breadth of its offering, the business has re-branded to RSB Group (UK), incorporating both the construction and poultry services divisions.
RSB Group (UK) plans to continue to work with Smith Cooper to expand further by moving into renewable energy sources in the future.
James Hignett, managing director at RSB Group (UK), said: “We are an ambitious business and strong growth forms a major part of our business plan moving forward. Having worked closely with Smith Cooper to purchase the poultry services company and the recent subsequent re-brand, we feel that we are now in a position to take on large projects and drive further expansion.
“Smith Cooper’s guidance has been invaluable, and as we continue to develop RSB Group further, we will be working with the firm to ensure that our decisions are strategically sound and we make the most of all opportunities available to us to hit our £1 million turnover goal in 2013.”
Jeremy Cope, lead partner at Smith Cooper in Birmingham, said: “James and his team are passionate about both sides of the business which is shown in how far they have come since 2004. With the poultry services arm now reaching its full potential following the diversification of its services, and with the construction business securing high profile projects, the business is in a strong position to achieve significant growth in the next 12 months.
“The recent re-brand was important for the company as it better reflects the Group’s services. I’m looking forward to working with James to help him continue their success and provide further job opportunities in the local area.”
