ASL Achieves Record-Breaking Turnover and Plans for Expansion

Bolton-based cable assembly company ASL has announced a record-breaking financial year with a remarkable turnover of £8.2 million.

This significant achievement is further highlighted by £927,000 of brand new business secured over the past year, showcasing the company’s strong growth and strategic success.

ASL employs a dedicated team of 90 staff at its Bolton manufacturing facility and has set an ambitious target of reaching £10 million turnover by 2026. To accommodate its growing workforce, the company is planning to construct a mezzanine within its factory, creating additional office space to support its increasing number of employees.

In addition to their financial success, ASL has made substantial investments in infrastructure and its workforce. Recent expenditures include £100,000 on solar panels and £75,000 on a state-of-the-art stock system with two new stock controllers. These investments reflect ASL’s commitment to innovation, sustainability, and operational excellence, aiming to enhance efficiency and build customer trust.

The family-owned business, managed by siblings Gareth, Sophie, and Oliver Balshaw, are thrilled with this year’s achievements and optimistic about future growth. Gareth Balshaw, Managing Director, expressed his gratitude: “It is an incredible privilege to run the company and work with such a dedicated team. The commitment and passion from all our staff has been key to our success, leading to record order books and sales figures.”

ASL’s dedication to its employees is evident in the notable milestones achieved by several team members. Over the past year, Rob Parkinson celebrated his 20 year anniversary and incredibly without a day off sick! Michele Barnes also reached a major milestone, celebrating her 10th year of service. The company has rightfully recognised and promoted several employees: Adam Tunnah to Costing Supervisor, Adam Walsh to Junior Engineer, Petronela Bordeianu to Team Leader, Madalina Tecucianu to Purchase Ledger, and Melania Rovetto to Production Supervisor.
