Sussex Super Growth 2017 - celebrating the success of Sussex-based businesses
It’s well understood that achieving sustained business growth isn’t easy.
Particularly in an uncertain economy, it’s vitally important that we continue to celebrate the success of those Sussex-based companies that are driving rising demand, increasing employment and generating wealth and prosperity. The Sussex Super Growth Awards 2017 return for a third successive year to do just that.
Sussex has over 80,000 businesses employing more than 650,000 people and contributes over £34bn to the economy. With the UK’s second largest airport on its doorstep, a close proximity to the nation’s capital and well-established transport links, Sussex is a great place for businesses to prosper.
Sponsored by asb law, Lloyds Bank and Kreston Reeves, in collaboration with The Argus, Sussex Super Growth produces a unique index of the 60 fastest growing businesses across the region and celebrates their success at a special awards event to be held at the Amex Stadium in March 2017.
The turnover of all Sussex-based businesses is assessed over a three-year accounting period using filed information at Companies House to identify the fastest growing companies. The top 60 companies are selected as Sussex Super Growth finalists.
Russell Bell, Senior Consultant, at asb law explained: “Sussex has major business strengths in construction, manufacturing, information and communications technology, aviation and professional services. Sussex Super Growth provides a welcome opportunity to celebrate the success of companies that are creating wealth and generating jobs across the region.”
Graham Hollis, Relationship Director for Lloyds Commercial Banking, commented ‘’With the Super Growth Awards now an established fixture on the Sussex business calendar, we look forward to joining in another successful campaign in 2017, and to recognising and celebrating the achievements of our most successful fast-growth companies’’
Paul Roe, Partner at Kreston Reeves commented: “It’s always great to see Sussex businesses doing well and these awards are unique in their ability to pick up fantastic success stories. We continue to work with high growth businesses in Sussex and know the challenges that they have to navigate in order to generate and sustain growth - we are delighted to be supporting great businesses in getting the recognition they so deserve, and making Sussex such a great place to do business”.
The Sussex Super Growth 2017 Awards will be presented at the Amex Stadium in Brighton on Tuesday, 7 March 2017 by the well known broadcaster and business consultant Simon Fanshawe OBE, where all finalists and the fastest-growing company will be announced.
The fastest-growing company in last year’s Sussex Super Growth Awards was Comms Factory Group Ltd with 311% growth. Kingscote Rojay Ltd and Keysource Ltd shared the honours in 2015 with an identical growth rate of 135%.
