FAST TRACK 100 - BRITAIN’S FASTEST-GROWING PRIVATE COMPANIES REVEALED IN SPECIAL 2020 COVID-19 EDITION
Nurture is delighted to feature in the 24th annual Sunday Times Virgin Atlantic Fast Track 100 league table, published on 6th December 2020.
The table ranks Britain’s 100 private companies with the fastest-growing sales over their latest three years and is compiled by Fast Track and published in The Sunday Times each year.
This is Nurtures 4th time to feature in the Fast Track 100 league table, having first appeared in 2014, then 2015, 2019 and 2020.
Peter Fane, Founder and MD, Nurture Landscapes “It's been a challenging year for all and it is a real testament to the Nurture team that we are able to continue being successful, even in these unprecendented times. A huge thank you to all our staff for their continued hard work, especially to our operational teams, who due to us providing services to many key and essential business and organisations, including hospitals, several Royal Parks and over 600 DWP offices across the UK, have had to continue working throughout the height of this pandemic.”
Despite the pandemic, more than two thirds of the companies (70) featured have recruited new staff since March, adding 3,500 jobs since Covid-19 struck.
This year’s table includes 42 retailers – a Fast Track 100 record, and up from 31 last year – all of which sell online.
The top spot on this year’s league table goes to Glencar Construction, set up in 2016 by Chris Gleave, 49, and Eddie McGillycuddy, 40, in 2016. Sales leapt from £610k in 2017 to an annualised £96.5m in the year to September, resulting in an average growth rate of 441% a year, a record for the table over its 24 years.
Sir Richard Branson, founder of Virgin Atlantic and Virgin Group, which has supported Fast Track for all 24 years, said:
“While we are living in extremely uncertain and challenging times, there is one thing I am certain of: entrepreneurs are the dreamers, the doers, and the innovators that have the power to have a positive impact on society. There are so many inspiring examples of this on the Fast Track 100 league table showing this is just as true, if not more so, in 2020 as it ever has been.”
