Commenting on the performance for the year, Jimmy Dalton, CFO at Arkphire said: “Last year proved to be another tremendous year for Arkphire, further accelerating the period of growth that the business has been enjoying. Over the past three years, Arkphire has grown turnover from €20m to €74m and 90% of this growth has been organic. Arkphire is well positioned to continue on its rapid growth trajectory and we are confident of increasing annual turnover to €100m in 2018.”
