The list describes itself as “an annual celebration of some of the country’s most dynamic, consistently expanding small and medium sized businesses from a broad selection of market sectors” and it examines the opportunities and challenges that face companies and the trends that will shape the UK’s economy moving forward.
This is the third such annual report from the London Stock Exchange. Of the 1,000 companies on the list, 104 are in manufacturing and engineering, a sector that the report suggested has a turnover of around £1.7 trillion a year in the UK.
Xavier Rolet KBE, chief executive of the London Stock Exchange Group, said: “Today’s celebration is fundamental to London Stock Exchange’s core, the need to support UK high-growth companies in their journeys from start-up to stardom and create an entrepreneurship revolution.”
Steve Loughton, managing director of Jestic, said: “It’s encouraging for the foodservice equipment supply sector to be recognised in such a prestigious report.
“Going forward, a growing desire to be more sustainable, use less energy and create less waste offers a great opportunity for future growth within our business as a whole.”
