Great start to 2017 for Lancashire firm
15 March 2017
Lancashire firm, LARS Communications Limited, has enjoyed a flying start to 2017, leading to an ongoing recruitment drive, as the company seeks to expand.
The Carnforth based company, an industry leader in radio site build and antenna system installation, has already taken on a number of new members of staff following several large contract wins. Wherever possible, the company looks to recruit from the local area.
The firm’s newest recruits were taken on following confirmation that LARS had been successful with its tender for a nationwide microwave installation project to add to further contract awards from BT, the Met Office and leading UK Power Generation companies.
Nick Churchill, Adam McArthur and Callum Little, all of whom have been trained in-house with the essential rigging skills required, have joined the microwave installation team and Anne Thexton (pictured left) has joined the company to provide administrative support.
Another new member of the growing LARS’ team is Rebecca Wood (pictured right), Management Accountant, who has joined LARS from Moore and Smalley’s Lancaster Office.
Ian Turner, Managing Director, said; “The growing number of staff at LARS is testament to the hard work the existing team has put in to achieve ongoing success for the company and we are confident that we will continue to expand.”
Business Development Manager, Julian Cooper, added; “One of the marketing initiatives that we have in place is to exhibit at B-APCO in late March. B-APCO is the association which represents the Public Safety and Communications Sector and this exhibition provides the ideal platform for us to showcase our telecommunications infrastructure provision to the emergency services – another area where we have seen success in recent years.”
B-APCO will take place at The International Centre in Telford on 21st and 22nd March.
