Surrey Super Growth Awards 2018 recognise the fastest-growing companies

 

sysgLogo_webThe Surrey Super Growth Awards took place on Thursday, 28 June 2018 at the historic Brooklands Museum in Weybridge. Now in its 3rd year, business leaders from across the county attended this prestigious breakfast event to find out which were the fastest-growing privately-owned companies in Surrey.

 

Surrey Super Growth is a collaboration between asb law, Lloyds Bank and RSM. It is different from traditional business awards in that the finalists don’t apply to participate as the work is already done in their financial reports filed at Companies House. The turnover growth of companies that meet the Awards criteria is assessed over a four-year accounting period to produce a finalist list.

This year’s Surrey Super Growth Awards were presented at the historic Brooklands Museum in Weybridge on 28 June 2018.

 The Surrey Super Growth 2018 winner was announced as Leatherhead-based ESP Electricity Ltd, with an outstanding growth rate of 317%. The company develops and operates electricity networks, primarily for new build developments and industrial and commercial markets. It was established in 2003 and was the first Independent Distribution Network Operator to be awarded an electricity distribution licence in the newly deregulated market.

Commenting on the success, Nick Clark, Chief Commercial Officer of ESP Utilities Group, said: “ESP Electricity is delighted to receive this award and it recognises the immense effort the company has made in growing the business over recent years. In entering what was a monopoly market with significant barriers to entry we feel especially proud that the company is now at the forefront playing a vital role in offering customers a choice where none previously existed, and our growth is a reflection of the people we employ and their drive, commitment and values.”

The Surrey Super Growth 2018 Runner-Up was Collins Construction Ltd, a fit-out and refurbishment contractor for the commercial, healthcare and leisure sector, with a growth rate of 223%.
