Wilson Vale celebrates 20 years

Wilson Vale is currently celebrating its 20th year in business and says it is doing so with lofty ambitions, following a year that has seen turnover increase by 6.5% and a forecast of 25% growth in gross profit for 2022. Led by joint managing directors David Anderson and Phil Hindmarch, the business is focused on achieving continued, sustainable growth. 

The caterer employs over 650 people, specialising in high-quality catering, mainly within the business and industry, private education and conference venue sectors. Putting purpose ahead of profit, it continues to cap new client gains at 10 per year, which it believes adds value rather than volume.

Anderson said: “We forge lasting client partnerships that from day one to the present day have the same amount of importance and dedication invested into them. This means that our retention rates are something we are incredibly proud of.

“We still have our first-ever client and still operate four out of the first five contracts we were awarded. Of our existing clients that went out to tender over the five years up to 2022, we retained almost 90% of contracts.

“If we get these things right then the numbers fall into place. This has been our approach for 20 years.”
