RECORD-BREAKING results are being celebrated by global telecommunications recruitment specialist Penta Consulting.
The 2012 figures released by the company, based in Stafford Road in Wallington, show profit before tax was £3.3 million, the best since it was founded 14 years ago.
Paul Clark, Penta's chief executive, said: "Over the past year Penta's international business has grown by 37 per cent.
"With operations in over 85 countries, global business now accounts for 69 per cent of our turnover and 73 per cent of profits."
He added: "I am extremely pleased with this year's results which can be attributed to the hard work of all the staff and our continued focus on high-value business.
"All in all we have had an outstanding year on all fronts and I look forward to releasing our interim figures in the new year." Penta Consulting have also just signed a deal to sponsor David Weir until the 2014 Commonwealth Games.
Mr Clark believes another component of Penta's 2012 success has been the high level of recognition the company has received through its business and recruitment awards.
These have included being named best international recruitment company and best company to work for in the Recruitment International Awards plus best UK overseas operation in the Global Recruiter Awards and three regional business awards.
Earlier this year, Penta was called an "outstanding" place to work and was ranked 13th in the Sunday Times Best Companies to Work For guide, which is seen as the definitive such listing.
