Two previous success stories of Locate in Kent have been ranked among Britain’s private companies with the fastest-growing profits over three years.
Tunbridge Wells-based clothes retailer, Childrensalon, and touch screen display business Sahara Presentation Systems in Dartford have made it onto the Sunday Times BDO Profit Track 100.
They are among 23 companies in the South East to make it onto the league table, the highest number of any region.
Coming in at 45th place, Childresalon, achieved an 81% growth in profit to £11 million. The company employs 202 people and boosted customer engagement through the launch of a new ‘Instgram-style’ website last year.
Sahara Presentation Systems was a new entrant to the table and placed 67th. The firm, which employs 73 people, has installed its interactive touchscreens in school classrooms all over Britain. It saw a successful 68% growth in profits to £3 million.
This year’s Profit Track 100 companies achieved, on average, profit growth of 82% a year over three years, to a total of £1.5bn in 2014/15.
Stuart Lisle, partner in the southeast at BDO, the title sponsor of the league table, said: “Medium-sized businesses across the UK are thriving, creating one in four jobs and responsible for one third of the country’s total revenue.
“They are seizing the opportunities a recovering economy presents and the most profitable have remained focused on sustainable growth through investment in innovation, diversification and overseas expansion.”
