PET-Xi invests in Coventry

Coventry-based PET-Xi, a firm which works with young people to help boost their education, is expanding its headquarters and relocating to a new office after a period of growth.

Started 21 years ago, the business has grown its team to employ 65 direct members of staff, with plans to raise this figure to 80 before the end of the year, with a further 400 people employed across the UK on a freelance basis.

The firm, which uses a range of courses and programmes to help children of all ages to overcome a host of barriers to learning inside and outside of school to help them achieve success, also offers its own apprenticeship service.

PET-Xi now has nine apprentices of its own and is also placing around 150 in businesses and organisations across the country.

Fleur Sexton, joint managing director of PET-Xi, said: “We actually started with Chamber support back in 1995 and, now, here we are more than 20 years later expanding again into a

new office and are strategic partners of the Chamber.

“We are passionate about Coventry and we’re delighted to be investing in the city again by buying new offices and also adding to the team.”

Louise Bennett, the chief executive of the Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce, said: “We are delighted to see PET-Xi growing again – especially when you look at the hugely important work they do not only in this region but around the country too.

“They are a perfect case in point for what Go For Growth is all about. They are, themselves, expanding and creating new jobs within the company but also helping to enhance the employability of the individuals they work with which is what other businesses tell us is a barrier to their growth.”
