AA Global took the top spot in in over half the categories measured by ESPO, scoring more than 90 per cent in all but two groups.
The company, which also has an office in Worcester, was number one in providing managed services to police, health and in local government and the wider public sector. It was also top for remote video spoken and non-spoken services and for translation, transcription and additional services. For
face-to-face non-spoken services AA Global was ranked first in all 12 regions in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, finishing top in 18 of the 31 categories overall.
ESPO provides more than 27,000 products and services across 120 frameworks to more than 200,000 customers. Suppliers are assessed on financial stability, track record, experience and technical and professional ability.
Kirk Akdemir, CEO of AA Global, said: “ESPO is a very large and important framework and inclusion indicates our status as a major player in the country, operating in the same league as some very big organisations. “The listing is primarily a guide for the public sector but it is also recognised in the private
sector as a hallmark of excellence. Last time we made the top four in most categories so this shows a big improvement in a sector which is more competitive than ever, with more than 200 companies applying to be included. “I’m extremely grateful to our team for helping us secure this recognition. It sends a positive
message about our commitment to providing the best language services. We are now focused on continuous improvement to build on this success and to address the two areas where we dipped below 90 per cent!”
AA Global, a key supporter of the Chamber’s International Trade Centre, employs nearly 15,000 translators and interpreters who between them cover more than 500 languages. Of the current permanent
workforce of 25, more than 20 are based in Hull.
