We are delighted to announce that the Tinsley Bridge Group has been included in the inaugural publication of London Stock Exchange Group’s 1,000 Companies to Inspire Britain – a list of the most inspiring and exciting small and medium-sized companies in the UK.
The directory of 1,000 inspiring British companies was complied by leading sales software business, Growth Intelligence. The company tracks the performance and activity of millions of businesses that meet the qualifying criteria, in real time.
To be eligible for inclusion in the list businesses had to be at least three years old and based in the UK – with a turnover of between £6million and £250million over the last 12 months.
They also had to show their revenue had grown over the last four years and that they’d either increased the number of employees, size of the workspace, won more contracts or increased the number of new patents.
More than 100 industry sectors are represented in the report, which also aims to highlight the sectors and trends that will shape the future of the UK economy. There are twice as many manufacturing businesses (one in 20) than technology businesses included, along with representatives of architecture, banking, retail, construction and wine.
Household names that made the top 1,000 included: Aardman Animations, Jack Wills, Addison Lee, Cath Kidston, Naked Wines, Moonpig and Brewdog.
Tinsley Bridge Group was one of the few companies included that are based outside of the London area – with the capital home to over three-quarters of the 1,000 businesses.
Speaking about the company’s inclusion, Managing Director Mark Webber said: “Our inclusion in this list is a real confidence boost and it focuses attention on the cutting edge work being carried out in Sheffield.”
London Stock Exchange Chief Executive Xavier Rolet said: “The UK has some of the most inspiring growth businesses in the world.
“Our report showcases some of these fast-growing and dynamic companies; the type of companies we believe will help fuel the long-term growth of the UK economy.”
