The report is a celebration of the UK’s fastest-growing and most dynamic small and medium sized businesses across the UK.
To be included in the list, companies needed to show consistent revenue growth over a minimum of three years, significantly outperforming their industry peers.
"We are delighted to be included in the fifth edition of ‘1000 Companies to Inspire Britain’, making us one of only five companies to make the list for five consecutive years. The report shines a light on some of the UK’s most ambitious and fast-growing companies, covering over 100 sectors,” said Malcolm Pye, CEO of Benchmark.
"Benchmark has evolved hugely since our establishment in 2000 and since our IPO in 2013, from a consulting-led business at the outset to an international biotechnology group employing almost 1000 people with revenues of £140 million. Our success and inclusion in this report is down to the hard work, talent and dedication of every member of our team," he added.
“We warmly congratulate all of the companies identified in this year’s ‘1000 Companies to Inspire Britain’ report. Five years on, the report continues to demonstrate the strength and diversity of British businesses across the country,” said Nikhil Rathi, CEO, London Stock Exchange Plc. “These dynamic companies are the backbone of our economy, playing an important role in the UK’s ability to innovate, export and grow. This report is a significant part of London Stock Exchange Group’s broader campaign to support UK high growth companies. We are committed to championing British businesses and Britain’s dynamic entrepreneurial spirit.”
