Scrivens expands

Opticians and hearing care company grows as it marks its 80th anniversary 


The expansion comes as the family-owned business marks its 80th anniversary.

Scrivens has reported a “huge increase” in its hearing care services over the last 12 months, appointing 15 additional hearing aid audiologists and investing in larger head offices as a result.

Chairman of Scrivens, Nick Georgevic, said: “When we moved to our head office in Edgbaston in May 2010, it was with a view to continuing to grow the business by providing our optical and hearing care services nationwide. It is fitting that as we celebrate our 80th anniversary we can see that objective realised.”

Scrivens is the second largest provider of NHS hearing care on the High Street. It has been providing hearing care services for the last 60 years, for 11 of which it has offered NHS services. It currently has 182 branches across England and Wales, with more than 1100 employees.
