Leading asbestos experts open new Birmingham base
A leading team of independent asbestos experts has opened its newest office in Birmingham.
Acorn Analytical Services already has bases in London, Northampton and Yorkshire and has now expanded its business into Birmingham to cope with the ever-growing demand from customers in the city and the surrounding area.
Acorn, which provides asbestos consultancy services including asbestos air testing, surveys, removal management and accredited training, opened the Birmingham branch on Monday, October 19, following a slight delay due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The new office, in Bristol Road South, will be led by consultant Joe Gore and will be staffed by people from the Birmingham area.
Company director Ian Stone said: “Our new office has enabled us to employ local people to service our existing clients in and around Birmingham. This allows us to introduce efficiencies and better response times. This in turn reduces costs, wear and tear on vehicles, travel time for our staff and further reduces our company’s carbon footprint.
“It also enables us to further implement our Acorn Asbestos Antidote which Joe is championing. This scheme takes firms at risk of asbestos-related prosecution and fines to full compliance with asbestos regulations and keeps their staff and clients safe from asbestos exposure.”
Fellow director Neil Munro added: “We’re thrilled to open our new office here in Birmingham as it will play a pivotal role in helping us to better serve our clients in the city and surrounding areas.
“This is quite an achievement, particularly considering the challenges that so many businesses have faced this year. This is testament to the success of our business.
“During lockdown we continued to provide essential asbestos safety and compliance services to our hospital and local authority clients. We also continued to support clients who were midway through asbestos removal projects.
“We were in a very strong position going into lockdown which enabled us to come out strong on the other side.
“Our continued growth strategy and confidence in our market means we’ve been able to move forward on our plans to open our Birmingham office.”
