The annual league table, published by newspaper The Sunday Times, is compiled by Oxford-based research company Fast Track, and considers companies with revenues of over £25m and export sales of at least £1m and 5% of total revenues.

Granada, which manufactures jib cranes, overhead cranes and light crane systems, was included in the list for the first time this year, ranking at number 28. Mark Sidwell, managing director at Granada, said: “Granada’s inclusion in the table, and our rank—exceptionally high for a first-time entrant—is based on achieving over 98% 2-year average international sales growth per annum, up to September 2018. Further growth in sales since the data was compiled points to a very healthy picture for us. We’re all delighted to have our international growth strategy recognised by this prestigious listing.

“Our international growth strategy is reflected, too, in our ambitions within the UK and I’m delighted that we have entered 2020 with a strong client base that the team at Granada works to support—from sales through to servicing, maintenance and ongoing customer support. Our success, both within the UK and internationally, is a testament to the hard work and expertise of all our staff.”
