Karl Pemberton, Active’s Managing Director said: “Active has had a number of successes to celebrate, not least the 24% increase in turnover. This additional revenue has allowed us to expand the business, and invest more money in our people. The leadership team has been able to take away some valuable learning points from this year, not only about growing the business, but also about the value of self-development.

“Thanks to all our stakeholders for their continued support during this period. As a result of this years’ profits increase, we will be making a further announcement in the near future.”
