Eagle Couriers is on the road to achieving £5 million in annual turnover by 2014 after client numbers grew by a fifth in the past year.

The firm, which was established in 1985 and has bases in Bathgate, Edinburgh and Glasgow, said yesterday that it planned to add a further 12 vehicles to its 90-strong fleet and increase its headcount.

Sales in the past year are said to have exceeded the company’s £3m turnover target after growing its client base and maintaining and extending contracts within the private and public sectors.

Director Fiona Deas said: “So far, we have taken on 14 members of staff this year, adding to our current team of 110. Continuous recruitment has been a key sign that the business is going in the right direction.

“We have kept our target for 2014 just as ambitious as this year’s and hope that we continue the great work we are doing across both the public and private sectors.”
