As 2017 draws to a close, Wales Online listed Acorn and 17 other businesses who are expected to have a big 2018.
"The recruitment and training company is a well established business. Up to 6,500 agency workers are placed by Acorn into positions for both SME and multi-national organisations each week.
And in 2018 there are ambitious plans for the Newport headquartered business.
Acorn has just opened four new branches (including Manchester and Bournemouth) and there are plans for a branch in Dublin during the second quarter.
There will be a number of new divisions, with Acorn adding aerospace and defence, nuclear, energy, oil and gas, to divisions such as legal, accounts and finance, construction, technology and engineering, and IT."
