1000 Companies to inspire Britain

1000 Companies to Inspire BRITAIN

Clacton-based dalau™ Ltd has been included in the inaugural publication of London Stock Exchange Group’s 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain, a list of the 1,000 most inspiring small and medium-sized companies in the UK.

“To be selected for the list, companies had to demonstrate not only a positive growth in revenue over the last four years, but also an increase in employee numbers, workspace, contract wins or patent filings.  The result is a list of companies richer and more varied than ever identified in any other exercise of this type.  It demonstrates that the UK has a diverse economy with companies on the list representing over 100 sectors: from architecture and automotive, to venture capital and wine, and, encouragingly, from across every region of the UK.

The London Stock Exchange Groups’ goal in producing the report is to highlight, to as wide an audience as possible, the importance of SMEs to the future of the UK economy.  Their own research and that of many others, has shown that it is almost exclusively these companies that have generated new, net job creation in the UK since the financial crisis.  More needs to be done to raise awareness of the importance of these businesses.  More needs to be done to nurture, support and encourage these companies, many of which have the potential to be the blue chips of tomorrow.  That support comes in many forms: from cutting red tape, to media promotion, to providing access to appropriate finance.  The list is not exhaustive, but it shines a light on some of the UK’s most vibrant companies”.
