SHB is delighted to confirm that they have featured as one of ten “Ones to Watch” in the 13th annual Sunday Times Grant Thornton Top Track 250. The list has been published in the Sunday Times business section (01/10/17) as well as being available on the Sunday Times digital edition and website.
The Sunday Times Grant Thornton Top Track 250 league table ranks Britain’s private mid-market growth companies with the biggest sales. It is compiled by Fast Track and published in The Sunday Times each October, with an awards event in November.
This is the first time SHB has been recognised as part of this prestigious list and are proud to be listed with other extremely successful business around the UK. Paul Street, SHB’s Managing Director expressed his delight at the recognition:
“SHB has achieved a continual trend of growth over several decades offering a unique and unrivalled service to our customers, many of whom have remained loyal to the business for a number of years. Whilst the market has become as competitive as ever, we continue to move forward and try to offer a solution that enhances the productivity of each and every customer’s unique business all the while maintaining the greatest value possible.
Being recognised as one of ten businesses to watch by The Sunday Times Top Track 250 is testament to our teams across the business as well as our customers who we continue to work closely with. We look forward to the rest of 2017 and the start of 2018 where we aim to continue our trend of growth”.
As the business has continued to grow both organically and through acquisition, so has SHB’s renowned diverse fleet, geographical footprint and subsequent staffing levels. Staff numbers are currently at its highest with the Hampshire based firm employing over 730 people around the UK.
The recent purchase of Acklea – a leading supplier of Traffic Management goods as well as several notably large contract wins have been key benefactors in SHB being recognised amongst the UK’s business elite, and whilst the end of 2017 is expected to show another year of growth, the company is already targeting further improvements and milestones for 2018.
