Chief executive Syed Ziaullah said: “Barclays confidence in our business with our track record and our ten year relationship speaks volume. I am delighted that they are supporting us with what is an important stage in the company’s growth. This significant investment in the area will help keep jobs in the area – something we were keen to ensure.”
Andy Mayne of Barclays said: “APC has enjoyed tremendous growth since its inception. They have a clear strategic growth plan and I’m pleased to be able to support them with the creation of their new hub in Cannock.”
