By Sarah Ann McCay09 December 2013
Portable trackway rental company Lion Trackhire has been ranked 26th in The Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track 100 league table, which ranks Britain's 100 private companies with the fastest-growing sales over the last three years.
Founded in 2009, the company has grown from revenues of around £1 million in 2009/10 to £7.9 million in the year to March 2013, effectively doubling sales every year.
Lion has supplied aluminium track panels to Wimbledon, the Chelsea Flower Show and the London Olympics, as well as the Leeds and Reading music festivals. It has offices in Worksop, UK, and Stuttgart, Germany, and operates across Europe, with customers in the UK, Italy, Germany, France, Denmark and Austria.
“We are fortunate to have been recognised with numerous awards over the past five years and this latest accolade for Fast Track 100 is a great testament to the effort, passion and determination of our entire workforce", said Lion Trackhire’s managing director Dale Robinson. "I’m very proud of what we’ve all achieved in such a short time.”
The company offers 25000 trackway panels for hire, using the latest technology to achieve real-time date on panel availability to ensure the units are in constant use.
Lion also offers a recyclable aluminium trackway panel, which it claims is unique to the industry boasting no trip hazards and a serrated profile for increased traction withstanding weights of the world’s largest construction vehicles.
