Hull-based logistics and travel provider, John Good Group, has been recognised as one of Britain’s top 200 companies with the fastest-growing international sales by The Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200. Compiled by Fast Track and published in The Sunday Times each February, the prestigious list ranks the UK’s highest performing private firms by international growth.
The John Good Group’s international sales have grown by an impressive 125% over the last two years, to £12.9m, on total sales of £63.3m in 2017. Crediting its phenomenal growth to a strategic focus on exports during the last two years, John Good Group has invested in both people and technology to drive sales in both the UK and abroad and increase its global footprint. Its three largest export markets are the Middle East, the Far East and the Indian Sub Continent.
Commenting on the accolade, John Good Group CEO, Alan Platt said, “We’re delighted to be ranked amongst the top 20 British companies with the fastest-growing international sales. Our dedicated teams who operate across the UK and the Middle East have worked diligently to grow our international sales over the last two years, so to receive this recognition is fantastic. Although we’re headquartered in the UK, we consider ourselves a global company and look forward to further strategic growth throughout 2019 and beyond in both international and domestic markets.”
The league table programme is sponsored by HSBC, DHL Express and Oracle NetSuite, and compiled by Fast Track, the Oxford-based research and networking events firm.
Amanda Murphy, Head of Commercial Banking, HSBC UK, commented: “We at HSBC UK are delighted to back The Sunday Times International Track 200 again this year. All the businesses it showcases have truly inspiring stories to tell about creativity, resilience and ambition to succeed. The 16 companies in Yorkshire are putting the region firmly on the map. They are the kinds of enterprises we are thrilled to support and that provide the backbone of our economy, today and tomorrow.”
