Three Doncaster businesses have made it into the Ward Hadaway Yorkshire Fastest 50 2017, the comprehensive list of the region’s fastest-growing companies.
Organised by law firm Ward Hadaway and backed by The Yorkshire Post, the list celebrates privately owned businesses in the region that have shown the largest growth over recent years, with the aim of recognising high achieving businesses and encouraging others to follow them.
The three businesses are:
- Natural Paving Products (UK) Ltd: a leading independent supplier of natural stone landscaping products. Their activities range from managing quarries and transportation and distribution centres to sales and marketing of the finished products.
- Navartis Limited: this specialist project-focused technical recruitment company provides skilled personnel to clients within the global transportation, civil engineering and utility industries. They also appeared in the 2016 Ward Hadaway Yorkshire Fastest 50.
- NMC (Group) Limited: NMC Surfacing is an independent surfacing and civil engineering contractor that provides a 24/7 nationwide service, for some of the UK’s leading blue chip companies, from a network of regional offices. Clients include major supermarkets, national retailers and the NHS.
The Ward Hadaway Yorkshire Fastest 50 2017 contains businesses from a wide range of sectors. It includes leading players in the worlds of construction and video games. The list also includes those that have been owned by the same family for generations and businesses that were established during the dark days that followed the global economic crisis of 2008. It has been compiled in association with Top 100 UK law firm Ward Hadaway, which has seen its Yorkshire operation grow considerably since it was established in Leeds in 2008.
Jamie Martin, the managing partner at Ward Hadaway, said: “We are very proud and pleased to present the seventh Ward Hadaway Yorkshire Fastest 50 which once again has produced brilliant examples of all that is best about business in Yorkshire.
“The list also demonstrates the sheer variety of businesses that are succeeding in growing, creating jobs and prosperity and attracting investment into the region. “It is these companies which are the growth drivers of the Yorkshire economy and they deserve the accolades and the attention which being in the Ward Hadaway Yorkshire Fastest 50 brings them.
Following the publication of the Ward Hadaway Yorkshire Fastest 50, an awards ceremony will take place at Aspire Leeds on Friday, March 17, when the winners will be revealed.
There, awards will be given to the fastest growing small, medium and large businesses, as well as an overall award for the fastest growing business of the year.
Businesses in the list have been selected from a table of fastest growing profit-making, private, regional companies, based on turnover growth. Information has been compiled by researchers at Bradford University School of Management using data which is publicly available at Companies House of UK listed companies. The average turnover growth has been assessed on a percentage increase based on the difference between turnover figures filed for the last three years.
To qualify, businesses must be trading entities and have turnover in excess of £1,000,000 in the last three years of filed accounts as at December 31, 2016. Businesses must also have made profits in each of the past three years’ accounts and have filed new accounts since last year’s awards.
