It was an unexpected but very welcome surprise to receive a letter from Xavier Rolet, CEO of London Stock Exchange Group, congratulating Fencor Packaging Group Limited on its inclusion in their inaugural publication ‘1000 Companies to Inspire Britain’.
The fact that we knew nothing about it, there was no campaign or anything to enter, makes it all the better to be included.
In order to qualify, businesses must have had positive growth in revenue over the past four years, as well as showing an increase in employee numbers, workspace and contract wins or patent filings. The CEO of the London Stock Exchange Group, Xavier Rolet, describes it as a landmark report that identifies some of the UK’s most exciting and dynamic small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), of which there are 4.5 million companies to choose. The report lists companies which have not only performed strongly since 2009 – an exceptionally challenging period – but have consistently outperformed their sector peers.
As you would imagine, we’re very proud to be included in this inaugural publication. Managing Director, David Orr is quoted as saying “I was as surprised as anyone. The fact that it came without any warning or expectation made it all the more gratifying to receive. This is a tremendous accolade.” He also told the team “We are in very good company, this is a really encouraging endorsement. Thank you for being so inspiring, you all have every right to be very proud.”
