Paul Nicol, of Simco EFS, commented: “As an organisation, we strive to meet the demands of the industry to constantly strive to grow and achieve great things. Simco has a strong workforce that continues to grow in stature with the growth of the business. With these factors in mind, we are delighted to have been identified as one of the London Stock Exchange Group’s 1,000 Companies to Inspire Britain.  

“Moving forwards, Simco have further ambitions for growth and plan to expand our facilities and production line in order to facilitate this. In addition, we plan to increase the capacity of our workforce, whether that be through upskilling current members of staff or welcoming more people to the team. In essence, our highly managed approach to expansion ensures that we are able to sustain growth whilst ensuring that we do not compromise on the quality of our products and services.”

Paul further commented: “Being a member of the Black Country Chamber of Commerce ensures that we maintain strong links with the local business community. In particular, we find the events that the Chamber put on are useful in helping us to network with a range of businesses, and in turn this harnessing of local connections is great, not only for ourselves, but also the local economy. Furthermore, the support that we receive from our dedicated Relationship Manager, Sue Cyster, has been an asset to our business in helping us to navigate the barriers to growth that many companies can experience.”
