South Bank accountancy firm opens Hull office in regional expansion move

Grimsby-based accountancy firm AP Robinson & Co has expanded into Hull.

The company, which last year celebrated its 25th anniversary, has taken the step following the appointment of business development executive Gary Clark.

Launched by Andrew Robinson as a sole practitioner in 1994, it is now a four partner firm with 30 members of staff.

AP Robinson has taken an office at C4DI, having made the decision prior to the pandemic.

Mr Clark said the location is an ideal fit with the firm’s overall strategy and innovative approach.

“Not only is the move a really fantastic opportunity for AP Robinson & Co, it is also one for myself to help the business strive and meet Andrew Robinson’s vision for the future,” he said. “The timing, despite coronavirus and the UK’s lockdown, could not have been better, in terms of AP Robinson’s strategic move to Hull and future expansion of C4DI and the surrounding area.”

Described as specialising in a range of services across a variety of business sectors, AP Robinson & Co enjoys the headquarters location of a prominent former NatWest Bank at Riby Square, close to the port entrance on the major artery between Grimsby and Cleethorpes.

It also has an office in Barton, having acquired Cooke, Webster & Co in 2017.

Mr Clark said the firm has a particular focus on helping clients with business planning and strategic growth, with a commitment to expanding its existing product knowledge, embracing technology as well as meeting the challenges of an ever changing industry.

Senior partner at AP Robinson & Co, Emma Brook, said: “This move is such an exciting time for the firm. Now seems the right time for the expansion into a new market place and Hull has a lot to offer, more so, we have a lot to bring to Hull.”

It comes after fellow Grimsby accountancy firm Forrester Boyd strengthened its North Bank presence this summer, with the acquisition of Graybrowne.
