Hobart Service reports on annual growth & plans for 2023

Part of Hobart UK, Hobart Service has shared insights into their 2022 performance and strategic plans for 2023.

The company reported it has exceeded 2019 trading levels following a ‘turbulent time’ for the industry over the last few years. The 2022 turnover at the Peterborough-based UK headquarters increased by 33% versus 2021 and is set to exceed £30m in 2023.

Keith Mackie, Hobart Service managing director, commented, “Hobart Service has worked extremely hard to maintain and exceed service levels for our clients, we are now in a stronger position for 2023 due to operational changes we have made from our 2020/2021 learnings.

'Our people are our most powerful asset. Throughout the past few years, their resilience, commitment and adaptability has been extraordinary - this is a token of thanks from the business to support them and the value they bring.”

During 2022, members of the service delivery team were also awarded Cambridge University Hospitals' Covid Star Awards in recognition of their dedication and contribution to the hospitals throughout the pandemic.

Due to marketplace demand and new client wins within healthcare and education, the business also increased its workforce of UK wide technicians during Q2 2022 - a 12% increase for the service delivery teams.

Christian Hampshire, operations director, added, 'The company has also implemented a comprehensive Environmental and Social Responsibility Governance strategy to ensure all its operations meet stringent standards.'

In addition to operational changes, last year Hobart Service supported its workforce with the rising costs of living by offering a one-off payment of up to £1,000.
