Earlier this month, the Sunday Times published their annual HSBC International Track 200 league table, where A-SAFE ranked as one of the UK’s mid-market private companies with the fastest-growing international sales. A-SAFE made the list after reaching 48.54% in its two-year average international sales growth per annum, ranked at number 82 alongside 200 other UK businesses demonstrating exceptional international sales performance.
The 200 companies include a host of well-known brands, including brewery BrewDog, entertainment specialists VUE International and Pukka, who produce a range of herbal teas. Previous stars of the league table include Fever-Tree who create mixers for spirits and cocktails – now worth over £2bn, and travel search engine SkyScanner, bought by China’s largest travel company for £1.4bn last year.
The Sunday Times league table and awards programme is sponsored by HSBC and DHL Express, and compiled by Fast Track, the Oxford-based research and networking events firm.
Amanda Murphy, UK head of commercial banking at HSBC, commented: “This year’s Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200 is testament to the exciting opportunities available to ambitious UK businesses with appetite to grow their goods and services abroad.
June has been a month of achievements for A-SAFE, who also won an Advanced Manufacturing Innovation Award at the recent Made in the UK Awards ceremony, recognised for their new product RackEyeTM.
Co-Owner and Director of A-SAFE James Smith commented: “To be recognised in both a national league table and awards ceremony during the same month is a fantastic achievement for us. We started out as a small business, and each of these achievements is confirmation that we’re driving the business forward and embracing A-SAFE’s exceptional growth. The awards event also gave us a chance to showcase RackEyeTM, a product which we believe will transform warehouse safety, changing operations for the better.”
