The company has grown by 30 per cent between 2010 and 2012 and new managing director Tim Howell plans to expand further, saying the "brave" estimate is to double the size of the business in three-and-a-half years.
He added: "MITIE have been told that we would be welcome in the local authority market. It's recognised that we don't have a significant amount of work in that area and our guys are questioned why sometimes."
Howell sees entering a market subject to year-on-year cuts as an opportunity. "We know we can offer real value and we can operate really efficiently. We have a system that all our guys work to and we offer consistency - a really strong requirement for our customers.
"There's a real opportunity for growth, UK wide. We'll look at every opportunity that comes."
