TIS have been named one of the fastest growing companies in the East Midlands for the second successive year!
Ranked 46th in this year’s East Midlands Top 200 survey, produced by the Leicester office of accountants Grant Thornton in conjunction with the CBI, we have climbed a massive 63 places from 109th spot in the 2015 ranking, which is an impressive feat as only a quarter of last year’s Top 200 businesses made it through to this year’s list.
Now in its fourth year, the East Midlands Top 200 celebrates the financial performance of the region’s 200 fastest growing companies. It helps to provide insight into the health of the East Midlands economy by ranking businesses based on a three-year period of profit growth.
According to the 2016 Report’s findings, collectively, The Top 200 East Midlands companies have an operating profit of £736 million, employ 63,045 people, and turnover a total of £12.8 billion – a growth of 58.3% in the last three years.
This level of growth has enabled the East Midlands’ Top 200 companies to create almost 17,000 new jobs over the period of the report’s launch, an increase of 36% over the three years, increasing average wages and productivity at a higher rate than the national average.
Achieving this recognition tops off an impressive couple of weeks for us, as we were also crowned ‘Business of the Year’ at the 2016 Mansfield 2020 Business Awards. TIS apprentice Bradley Clifton was also voted ‘Young Apprentice of the Year’ at this year’s awards.
Commenting on the company’s impressive ranking in this year’s Top 200 report, James Twigg, Managing Director of Combined Services, said:
“Being named one of the fastest growing companies in the East Midlands is a testament to how far we have come as a company over the past few years.
Few businesses have been able to achieve such a massive climb up the rankings, which has to be attributed to our team and their ability to work together.
We are also pleased to have been part of the reported job growth in the East Midlands. Over the past 12 months, 20 new members of staff have been appointed across all levels of the business and eight apprentices have been recruited to our ever growing team.”
