The UK's Sunday Times newspaper has published its annual chart of the top 200 fastest growing independent UK exporters – the ‘International Track 200’.
Two companies in our field have once again made it into the chart, and both were among the top 100. Scaffold, mastclimber and hoist supplier Brogan was 65th – down from 31st last year – with export sales growth of just over 60 percent to £12.6 million. Total sales for the year to the end of 2018 were £34 million.
A short breath behind was Niftylift in 68th place – down from 51st last year – with export sales growth of 59 percent to £93.8 million, out of total revenues of £117.4 million for the year to the end of December 2018.
The list is not all encompassing, in order to enter revenues must be over £25 million, with export sales of at least a £1 million and five percent of total revenues. The companies also need to employ at least 10 people and be profitable.
