The East Midlands continues as the UK’s fastest growing economy outside London in a recent report highlighting its top 200 growth companies. In addition to analysing local companies’ profits over three years, interviews have also been used to establish the key drivers behind growth. View the full report here.

On average the companies featured grew by 22% year on year compared to the UK average growth of just 1.4% per year. Much of this growth has been fuelled by entry into new markets and investing in people, Research & Development and new plant. Companies reported an emphasis on quality, an increasing use of apprenticeships and the importance of attracting and retaining talent.

Ashfield and Mansfield punches above its weight, with 14 companies featured in the top 200 list, compared with just 8 from Chesterfield and 5 from Worksop. Indeed Paul Cook, Director at TIS (no. 109 on the list) is set to speak at Thursday’s Mansfield 2020 networking meeting. Find out more about 2020 and TIS.
