Clugston, the privately owned group of companies, which has interests in construction, facilities management, logistics and property development, is pleased to announce it has made it onto two of the UK’s ‘top performing’ lists – Yorkshire’s Fastest 50, and The London Stock Exchange’s, ‘1000 companies to Inspire Britain’.
Yorkshire Fastest 50 list celebrates the region’s fastest growing privately owned organisations that have shown the largest growth over recent years, with the aim of recognising high achieving companies and encouraging others to follow in their footsteps.
The London Stock Exchange’s ‘1000 companies to inspire Britain’ published in The Daily Telegraph is a list of the fastest growing “most exciting” SMEs in the UK. As well as celebrating this diverse and dynamic sector it highlights the important role they play in innovation and job creation. With over a quarter of the companies listed in manufacturing, construction and engineering it also dispels the myth that growth is dominated by IT and service companies.
Clugston’s growth can be put down to the company focusing on core sectors such as the emerging growth in renewables, in particular energy from waste, education and niche logistic services.
Stephen Martin, group chief executive of Clugston said, “I am delighted we made it on to both of these prestigious lists. To say the last few years have been challenging would be putting things mildly, we have stuck to our strategy and concentrated on those areas where we could see growth and the ability to build long term relationships. By being privately owned and light on our feet we have been able to flex our resources and respond quickly to customer’s needs .As a result over the past 3 years operational turnover has almost doubled to exceed £150millions, margins have improved and we have been able to create 90 new jobs. This has been down to a lot of hard work by my team and their staff for which I am grateful.
