Leicestershire-based Qdos Holdings has been listed in the London Stock Exchange’s “1000 Companies to Inspire Britain” report.
The report is an annual celebration of some of the fastest-growing and most dynamic small and medium-sized enterprises in the UK. As well as identifying 1,000 companies, the report examines in detail sectors and trends that will shape the future of the UK economy.
Xavier Rolet, CEO of the London Stock Exchange Group, said: “We want particularly to shine a light on the companies variously identified as ‘gazelles’, ‘the vital 6%’ or ‘scale-ups,’ which have a remarkably disproportionate impact on UK national economic output. As the CBI recently confirmed, 3,000 scale-up medium-sized businesses contributed £59bn to the UK economy between 2010 and 2013, effectively making the crucial difference between recession and recovery and we want to shine a light on what we know to be true: that these companies are the engine of the UK economy.”
Ashley Horton, CEO of Qdos Holdings, added: “We are absolutely delighted that one of the oldest and most respected financial institutions in the world have identified Qdos, what we have achieved, the growth and success of the Group and recognised us as a company that is making a significant difference.”
