Fast Growth 50 2008

At a time when there is only bad news on the economy, today we launch the tenth annual Fast Growth 50 list in the Western Mail. This recognises the fifty fastest growing firms in Wales and incloudes froms froma cross the nation operating in a range of sectors.

During the last decade, the impact of a small group of companies should not be underestimated. Since we started with the first publication in 1999, 317 firms have appeared on the ten lists published in the Western Mail.

As with all dynamic economies, some businesses have fallen by the wayside. However, it is estimated that, together, these fast growth companies have created around 15,000 jobs and have generated around £3.8 billion of additional turnover into the Welsh economy, much of which is spent on local goods and services.

That is an amazing contribution to the Welsh economy and one that should be applauded by everyone across Wales, especially as these firms create wealth and employment in their local communities.

It is said that Wales, as a nation, is slow to recognise success. However, to be described as one of the fifty fastest growing firms in Wales out of a business population of more than 190,000 is an achievement that all firms should aspire to.
