Record year for In-Comm

Record year for In-Comm

Black Country training provider In-Comm is celebrating after the completion of its largest ever contract helped it record its strongest 12 months in its 34-year history.

In-Comm saw turnover hit £1.2m in 2015 after delivering a project for a large manufacturer that saw more than 110 staff take part in Business Improvement Technique (BIT) courses.

The £500,000 programme focused on creating teams of employees that could work on 12 improvement projects designed to maximse energy efficiency, improve logistics, quality and streamline supply chain interaction.

Gareth Jones, managing director at In-Comm, said: “This contract was all about instilling the right culture and making staff think about how their individual roles impacted on the business and what they can do in order to make a positive difference.

“There is no doubt offering these type of opportunities helps with staff retention and motivation, with the management already seeing hundreds of thousands of pounds of benefits being generated from improved workflow, reduced inventory and additional capacity to compete for new contracts.”

The firm has continued its growth into 2016, as Jones adds: “We’re up about 20% on this time last year and the long-term vision is to grow the business to over £4m by the end of 2020.

“There has also been the recruitment of five new staff, with three more to follow…this will take our total workforce to over 38.”
