Willshee’s are proud to announce that we have been shortlisted in the Chartered Institution for Waste Management’s Fastest 50 Growing Companies for the second year running. This annual award is designed to recognise and celebrate the achievements of the best waste management companies in the UK. So, Willshee’s were delighted to find out that, not only did we feature in this year’s top 50 companies, but that we even secured a spot in the elite top 10.
This year’s list was particularly prestigious, with the average growth rate of each company that made the top 50 at more than 18%. This year also welcomed 22 new entries, with an average revenue of £15million, yet Willshee’s were one of only 4 businesses which managed to maintain their spot in the top 10. The combined turnover of this year’s Fast 50 was an incredible £1.068 billion, making Willshee’s ability to feature in the top 10 even more impressive.
Willshee’s even made the top 3 companies on the entire list, a feat which was described as ‘really impressive’ by Mark Wilson, partner at Catalyst Corporate Finance, the company which runs the award. We were especially commended for our leap from 10th place to 3rd, increasing our growth rate from an already admirable 23% last year, to 24% in 2017.
The awards ceremony was held at the Marriot Hotel in Mayfair which was a wonderful occasion to look back on the incredible year that we have had and reflect on our progress as a company. This continued growth is testament to the persistent effort and commitment from the entire Willshee’s team. Therefore, it is our staff who we would like to thank as we look forward to another record-breaking year.
