Nationwide catches the eye of the City
Nationwide Hygiene Supplies has been acknowledged by the London Stock Exchange as one of the '1000 Companies to Inspire Britain'. The report and listing identifies the UK's fastest-growing and most dynamic small and medium sized businesses (SMEs).
In order to be included in the list, companies needed to show consistent revenue growth over a minimum of three years, which significantly outperformed their industry peers.
"This award is recognition of our continued success and determination to deliver ever improving value to our customers," said CEO David Scholes (pictured), accepting the award on behalf of the company and all its staff.
"Nationwide Hygiene Supplies has always placed an emphasis on entrepreneurial and local service throughout its network of 35 branches, with each location managed and operated by investor shareholders and staffed by highly experienced cleaning and hygiene professionals."
The Rt. Hon. George Osborne MP said:
"UK high-growth businesses are leading the charge in rebuilding our economy. These companies are the backbone of the British economy. They create high-quality, well paid jobs, innovate and drive economic growth.
"This government fully understands the need to support ambitious entrepreneurs and ensure they can access the finance they need to grow.
"We have held the steadfast belief that - alongside deficit reduction - nurturing entrepreneurs, creating jobs, supporting hard-working families and keeping taxes low would get the UK economy back on track.
"Our measures to increase access to finance for business and encourage more investment have had a transformative effect on our economy."
Xavier Rolet, Chief Executive, London Stock Exchange Group said:
"High growth SMEs are the driving force behind the UK economy, developing the skills, jobs and growth we need. But ambition alone is not enough; their success must be highlighted and their growth properly supported with appropriate finance. That's why today's event is so important: demonstrating the strong alliance between UK Government, financial market participants, investors, entrepreneurs and companies to support these inspiring businesses.
"Today's celebration is fundamental to London Stock Exchange's core, the need to support UK high growth companies in their journeys from Start-up to Stardom and create an entrepreneurship revolution."
