Premier Forest Group, one of the UK’s fastest growing timber groups, has been recognised with a special award at this year’s Fast Growth 50 event in Cardiff.
The Fast Growth 50 is in its 20th year of celebrating the fastest growing firms in Wales. The awards, established by Professor Dylan Jones‐Evans in 1999 use sales as the main indicator, looking at a business’ percentage increase in turnover over three accounting periods.
This year, the awards acknowledged ‘super growth’ firms for the first time. These are companies whose turnover has surpassed £100m since they first appeared on the list.
Only ten firms that have made the Fast Growth 50 list in the past twenty years have passed the critical £100m mark, and Premier Forest Group is one of them.
Terry Edgell, CEO and co‐founder of Premier Forest Group, said: “To pass £100m turnover was a goal of ours for a number of years and to be recognised for passing this significant milestone is very rewarding. To be on the stage with household brands like Admiral and GoCompare was a real honour and showed us just how far Premier Forest Group has come.”
Professor Dylan Jones‐Evans said: “When I first established Fast Growth 50 it was to celebrate companies like Premier Forest Group who prove that you can set up, run, and grow hugely successful businesses right here in Wales. What Premier Forest has achieved is testament to a lot of hard work and a successful business strategy.”
