LONDON (PRWEB UK) 18 May 2015
SCM World, the supply chain talent development partner for the world’s leading companies, announced today it has been included in the Sunday Times BT Business SME Export Track 100, a ranking of Britain’s private small and medium-sized companies (SMEs) with the fastest-growing international sales over the last two years.
Published on May 17, the honour recognises firms that have made a significant contribution to Britain’s economy. SCM World, which employs 50 staff, grew its international sales by 98% over the last year, all driven from organic growth.
SCM World leverages a peer-driven approach to talent and development, using supply chain best practices to empower professionals with the ability to drive greater positive impact on business performance and help solve the world’s fundamental challenges like health, hunger and environmental sustainability.
“In today’s global economy, it’s critical to spur dialogue with business leaders across the world to identify universal trends and enact positive changes that impact many,” said Oliver Sloane, CEO of SCM World. “We’re passionate about collaborating across borders to help drive step-change improvement in the supply chain talent, teams and transformations of the world’s leading companies and we’re particularly honoured to be included on this prestigious list of British companies showcasing international progress.”
Danny Longbottom, Managing Director UK SME at BT Business, commented:
“I would like to congratulate the businesses recognised in the inaugural Export Track 100, who are proving that it’s not necessarily size that determines international success. These businesses have used a combination of self-starting ambition, smart use of technology, and sheer hard work to punch well above their weight in the global market. The fruits of their labour are contributing to a strong and diverse UK economy, which we can all be thankful for.”
The SME Export Track 100 companies increased their overseas sales by an average of 73% a year over two years to a total of £705m. They employ more than 8,000 people, having added more than 2,500 during this time, some as a result of acquisitions.
The SME Export Track 100 is sponsored by BT Business and is supported by the Business is GREAT Britain campaign. It is compiled by Fast Track, the Oxford-based research and networking events company.
