Edinburgh-based property developer Shawfair was the fastest growing company in the UK between 2020 and 2021, according to Beauhurst. This was out of 45,000 businesses tracked by the company.
Shawfair is developing a new town 15 minutes from Edinburgh by train. The company was formed in 2013 and it grew revenues by 8,360% to £13.2m in 2021. The comparison is likely to be severely affected by lockdowns in 2020.
The fastest growing English company was Brighton-based trade shows organiser IMEX Group. Revenues grew by 7,580% to £11.1m. Again, lockdowns will have affected the comparative figure.
The Marine Group is the fastest growing company based in Wales with revenues 221% ahead at £1.4m. The marinas operator is headquartered in Cardiff and in March 2021 acquired Watchet Marina in the Bristol Channel.
Northern Ireland-based designer and manufacturer of products and services. Businesses range from healthcare to logistics. In October 2021, robotics and automation company FAST Technologies was acquired. Turnover jumped by 645% to £102m.
