The Staffordshire Growth Barometer 2018
03 October 2018
Our Staffordshire Growth Barometer announces the top 50 fastest growing companies in the region. The results compared to last year’s report show that these companies are not only still going strong but have actually quickened the pace of their growth.
Staffordshire’s fastest-growing companies are on a roll. The county’s top 50 growth leaders turned over a combined £25 billion in the last year under review, up 54% from £17 billion two years ago. Manufacturing remains the leading industry in Staffordshire, however, retail and wholesale are currently a close second with 9 companies within the top 50.
Comparisons with last year’s results make for interesting reading, for example, last year the top 3 fastest growing sectors in Staffordshire were transport and logistics followed by utilities and then real estate, construction and civil engineering. This year, all of the top 3 have changed with hospitality and leisure taking the top spot followed by biotechnology and then technology and media.
This year’s report looks at the county’s M&A highlights and hears from some of the companies included in the top 50 about their growth stories.
