The London Stock Exchanged has published its annual “1000 Companies to Inspire Britain” report, featuring some of the fastest-growing and most dynamic small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the UK.
London-based SSE Audio Group has been included in this year’s list.
In order to be included in the list, companies needed “to show consistent revenue growth over a minimum of three years, significantly outperforming their industry peers”.
Xavier Rolet, chief executive, London Stock Exchange Group comments: “Our report shows more high-growth firms coming from outside London, with 8% fewer companies coming from London compared with last year. Continually strong UK sectors such as IT, telecommunications and the creative industries remain exceptionally well represented.
With the acquisition of Canegreen and Wigwam Acoustics in 2013, SSE Audio Group became the largest audio rental house in the UK.
“Over the last four decades, we have seen our sector grow from a barely recognised adjunct to youth culture that struggled to get support from the banks, to a vibrant part of the UK creative industries that are recognised throughout the world and contribute significantly to the UK economy,” says John Penn, SSE Audio Group founder and MD.
“SSE Audio Group could not have achieved its growth and success without the skills, dedication and professionalism of our 100-strong staff plus the numerous freelance crews who work with us regularly.”
