Agility UK, the health and safety and employment law specialists, have opened a new office and training venue on Broad Street, Sheffield.
The new office will serve as a health and safety training and employment law training venue for businesses in and around the local area. It will be staffed by specialists in the field who will aim to provide comprehensive advice, support and training courses to clients in and around Sheffield and the wider South Yorkshire region.
The opening of a Sheffield branch affords Agility UK further scope to expand its existing client database and signals the launch of a new campaign to establish further offices in locations across the UK.
Keith Townsend, Managing Director of Agility UK, commented on the company’s plans for expansion, both in Sheffield and in further potential regions across the UK: “Our extensive market research has shown that businesses like to be supported by firms who operate in and around their local area. However, we have also found that those same businesses are reluctant to use sole traders, and this is often because those sole traders aren’t support by the same back up and indemnities as a larger, national corporation.”
Townsend added: “To help combat this potential conflict of interests, Agility UK is offering the services of an established nationwide business, specialising in the delivery of comprehensive health and safety and employment law solutions, but with an interest in operating on a regional basis. This gives our clients the benefit of a personalised, local presence while also offering the back up and infrastructure of a truly national organisation.”
As part of a wider group of companies offering a variety of tailored solutions for businesses, Agility UK will be sharing its new premises with partner company, Windmill Leasing. Together, the companies will offer comprehensive service solutions around health and safety and employment law advice and training courses, as well as specialist business car leasing and fleet management.
Agility UK is active in implementing a strategic plan to become a truly national provider of tailored solutions with a local presence. As such, there are plans to explore the potential opening of a new regional office in the south of England later in 2011.
