Sales consultancy and training firm durhamlane has itself posted its best ever sales performance figures.

The Newcastle-based firm has landed six figure sales during the final quarter of the year as it continues to grow its workforce.

durhamlane, which helps regional and national companies in the IT, technology, construction and manufacturing sectors develop and grow through outsourced sales and business development services, is targeting a turnover of £1 million by the end of 2015.

The firm also runs a sales graduate programme. New clients for this service include Romag, the specialist manufacturer of solar PV and specialist glass including bullet proof and security glass.

Recently three sales executives have joined its Outsourced Sales and Business Development team.

Tracey Wilson, Ashley Vallance and Andrew Howie have joined the business, boosting overall staff numbers to 14.

durhamlane founders Lee Durham and Richard Lane use their “selling at a higher level” methodology to provide outsourced sales, business development and consultancy work since 2011.

Richard Lane said the latest tranche of work is among a host of valuable contracts that his company will be delivering over the coming months as it goes for growth on the back of further new business as a driver for expansion.

He said: “We are seeing continuing strong demand for our services as economic confidence holds-up and companies eschew traditional approaches to sales generation and management processes.

“This is reflected by our best ever month for sales in October, which not only saw us win new customers but, equally pleasing, secure extensions to existing clients.

“We’re also delighted to be able to continue to invest in recruiting talented people, who can provide the highest levels of customer service.

“Next year promises to be even busier as we look to develop our presence further in sectors such as engineering, which can benefit significantly from external resources and expertise as part of a strategic growth plan.”

durhamlane work across the UK from offices in the North East and London. Their clients include global online assessment company The Test Factory, Anglia Ruskin University, Falcons RFC and construction firm the Elliott Group.
