Strong business growth at Task

Task Geoscience has been awarded three key projects in the last 5 weeks that represent not only a step increase in group turnover, but also cash-flow security over the next several years. This income stream, coming from diverse geographical and mineral sources, will form the basis of staff growth in both our Aberdeen and Perth offices and creates the opportunity and impetus for geographical expansion. This is an uncommon situation for an SME and reflects the confidence of our major clients in Task’s management team.
