27 October 2016: New research from accountants and business advisers BDO LLP shows that Keltbray Group is Surrey’s 8th fastest growing top 20 mid-sized company (£10m-£300m) based on its 37.15% sales (CAGR) growth over three accounting periods.

Top of the table for growth in Surrey and Sussex is Scitech Trustee Limited; a group which provides design, engineering, construction management and regulatory compliance consulting services to the life sciences sector, which despite being half the size of Keltbray, grew 170% over the same period.

The research suggests companies in Surrey and Sussex have continued to forge ahead in their expansion plans, reporting combined sales growth of 27% in the last year to £1.9bn, despite tightening market conditions and the uncertainty leading up to the EU referendum. Average sales per company stand at £48m (compared to £38m last year), representing £155k of sales per employee.

According to Partner at BDO LLP, Kevin Cook, “The 40 firms across both counties represent a broad range of sectors, but those taking top billing were real estate and construction with eight companies and manufacturing & business support services, both with five companies each.

“Throughout 2016, our research has continued to demonstrate how medium-sized businesses are thriving across the counties and making a significant contribution to their local economies.”
