Healthy growth for veterinary group as latest branch launches with £150,000 investment
08 SEP 2017
White Cross Vets operates 16 other practices throughout the UK including West Yorkshire sites in Guiseley and Roundhay.
The company previously ran the Eccleshill practice on Harrogate Road between 1997 and 2001, before it was acquired by a national chain.
The new practice will initially create six new jobs and is headed up by clinic director Andrew Miller who joins from the firm’s Roundhay practice.
White Cross Vets is owned and managed by the Harrison family who are all from Bradford.
The company is currently celebrating its 80th anniversary and now employs more than 200 employees after creating 50 new jobs in the last 12 months alone. Earlier this year, it was named one of the best places to work in the UK, for the fifth year running, in The Sunday Times ‘Best 100 Best Small Companies To Work For’ league table.
Tim Harrison, managing director of White Cross Vets, says: “Coming from a family of Bradfordians, and as a locally based business, it’s fantastic to be reopening in Eccleshill. This practice will incorporate all the best technology and knowledge from our 16 other practices to create one of Yorkshire’s most advanced veterinary surgeries. “The move is already generating plenty of interest and we’re really looking forward to opening our doors and welcoming back many of our previous clients, as well as caring for lots of new pets in the area.”
