Morson Group has featured in the Sunday Times HSBC Top Track 100 list for 2019.
Published on 7th July, the 18th annual Sunday Times HSBC Top Track 100 league table ranks Britain’s 100 private companies with the biggest sales.
The 11 companies headquartered in the northwest of England have made a significant contribution to the regional economy. Together they achieved sales of £26.1bn and profits of £1.4bn in their last financial year, and collectively employ more than 75,000 people. Morson is ranked 80th in the list, registering a turnover of £867million in 2018.
Morson Group CEO Ged Mason said “It’s fantastic to once again be among the Sunday Times HSBC Top Track 100 companies alongside some of the biggest names in the country across many industries. As we celebrate our 50th anniversary year in 2019, we’re already pushing on to continue the consistent growth seen in the business and are on course to cross the £1billion turnover milestone in the near future.”
The league table programme is sponsored by HSBC, Linklaters and PwC, and compiled by Fast Track, the Oxford-based research and networking events firm.
Amanda Murphy, Head of Commercial Banking, HSBC UK, commented: “Once again, Britain’s most ambitious private enterprises have shown their mettle by shrugging off uncertainty, growing their combined sales 14% to a record £220bn. It's reassuring that UK businesses are navigating change so confidently and the companies in the Top Track 100 are an inspiration to all. The 11 companies in the northwest are the kinds of firms that provide the backbone of our economy, and we at HSBC UK are thrilled to see them thrive."
