AW named an ‘inspiring’ business
AW Repair Group has been named as one of the 1,000 Companies to Inspire Britain.
The prestigious directory, compiled by the London Stock Exchange Group, lists the top 1,000 businesses considered to be the most inspiring, dynamic and fastest growing companies.
With 40 industry sectors covered, AW Repair Group is the only bodyshop group named in the 20 companies presented within the Automotive sector.
Managing director Andrew Walsh said, ‘This has come as a complete surprise. We did not enter a competition or put ourselves forward. The company has been selected by some of the most highly respected financial establishments. It is an absolute honour to be recognised as an inspiring company.’
Prime Minister, The Rt Hon Theresa May, wrote in her foreword to the publication, ‘All businesses, especially SMEs, are inspiring: taking the spark of an innovative idea and shaping it into a life –changing reality. New technology and new thinking brings better jobs for more people. The 1,000 innovative companies recognised in this report are at the forefront of doing just that.’
To be selected for the list businesses must have demonstrated not only positive growth in revenue over the last three years (between £6m and £250m) but also outperform their sector peers.
The CEO of London Stock Exchange Nikhil Rathi said, ‘Our goal in producing the report is to highlight, to as wide an audience as possible, the importance of fast-growing businesses to the future of the UK economy. We believe these companies have enormous potential for innovation, growth and job creation.’
AW Repair Group has opened a new repair centre for three consecutive years and employs more than 125 personnel.
