Norse Group has announced that it saw more than £16 million growth in new business for the nine months ending 31st December.
Catering, cleaning and trade waste management services have all seen particularly strong new business wins - the company recently announced a £3 million cleaning contract with Barnet London Borough Council.
Geoff Tucker, group sales director, said: "Norse has always been very conscious of the need to ensure any new business makes sound commercial sense... The importance of this approach has been particularly highlighted by the recent spate of problems amongst the major private sector outsourcing companies.
He added that Norse's public sector ethos "also takes added social value, environmental considerations, and best practice into account alongside commercial sustainability".
The group's forward order book is now over £2.5 billion he added.
