The Ones to Watch
Profits at Norfolk’s leading independent companies have tumbled by nearly a fifth over the past year while business performance has stalled, according to a major new survey of the county’s economy.
But Grant Thornton’s Norfolk Limited 2016 report – a look at the public accounts of the county’s 100 leading independent businesses – presents a more nuanced picture of the county’s economy over the past year and, the firm insists, paints a picture of modest growth in uncertain times.
We are very pleased to today find ourselves leading the pack in a new category this year.
The 2016 Norfolk Limited report contains a new category, listing the 25 highest-growth companies in the county which did not make the final list.
The Ones to Watch index is headed by Warings Furniture, which has shown turnover growth of 78% in the past two years to £8.47m, ahead of technology supplier Snellings, with a £10.45m turnover and 56% growth.
The findings of the report, which concentrate on businesses owned and managed within the county. We are very pleased to have been honoured with a mention and to fly the flag for Norfolk said, Director Stuart Smith.
