Landscape services, estate management and play space specialist TCL Group has been named one of the most dynamic companies in Europe by the London Stock Exchange.
The accolade follows its inclusion three years ago in the first ever list of 1,000 Companies to Inspire Britain and is a celebration of some of the fastest growing, inspirational SMEs across the continent.
The second edition of the London Stock Exchange Group’s landmark 1,000 Companies to Inspire Europe report, published this month, examines in detail the opportunities and challenges facing businesses and looks at the sectors and trends that will shape the future of all 28 EU economies.
It also aims to make it easier for investors to find opportunities to channel funds into businesses which want to grow and compete in bigger markets.
Nominees had to demonstrate not only positive growth in revenue over the last three years, but also needed to outperform their country peers.
TCL Group has grown from a small regional business turning over £5.5m in 2007 to a nationwide affair employing more than 800 colleagues and turning over around £60m.
The Group, one of whose member companies holds a royal warrant, has an impressive track record in the residential, commercial and public sectors.
TCL Group chief executive Simon Cashmore added: “We are honoured to be included in this report. We are engaged in a strategic acquisition process in order to broaden our geographical reach and offer clients the whole scope of our expertise. We are also focused on increasing the volume of work we carry out on complex, multi-faceted large scale projects which involve many players, such as local authorities, housing developers and environmental organisations.”
