We have been impressed recently to hear from a couple of clients that they feature in The Sunday Times Fast Track 100, published last month.
This is a respected league table that lists the top 100 privately-owned UK companies, ranked by how quickly their sales have grown over the past three years.
Bulk Powders, based in Colchester, sits at position 38. It is a sports nutrition company, which started out importing powders from the US, but now manufactures and stocks more than 1,000 supplements, multi-vitamins, whey powders and health foods. The company reached a turnover of £15.3 million in 2015 and its annual sales increased over three years by 78.49%.
BrewDog, an Aberdeenshire company, is at number 64 on the list. This crowd-funded brewery has 53,000 investors worldwide and operates 50 bars across the globe, and exports its beers to more than 60 countries. BrewDog has appeared on this list for a record five years in a row. Sales reached £44.7 million in 2015 and the annual sales increase for the three-year period was 61.32%.
Accellos One WMS
BULK POWDERS and BrewDog each run a different ERP system, but both use Accellos One WMS for their warehouse management. They each chose Balloon One as the implementation partner to integrate the Accellos warehouse management software with their particular ERP system.
We want to congratulate them both for achieving this remarkable accolade and wish them all the best for the awards ceremony in May and for the other events taking place throughout the year.
