Merton Group UK Ltd (MGUK) has reported that its focus on reinvestment is delivering results. A ‘top 200’ report, compiled by Grant Thornton UK LLP, has analysed the financial performance of companies that are run and managed from the East Midlands, highlighting the top 200 businesses which have delivered the greatest sustained growth over a three year period.
The top 200 companies listed in the report continue to perform strongly and are responsible for providing around 100,000 jobs, an increase of 39% in three years.
Michael Maybury, sales and marketing director at MGUK, said: “It is an impressive list, and given the tight criteria for the sustained level of growth required for companies to be included, we are extremely proud to be featured. It is a testament to the strength of the regional economy that so many companies qualified to be considered and fantastic that our performance has been recognised.”
Merton Group is continuing to invest in UK manufacturing with its recent development plans including an additional regional sales management tier, online website functionality and a brand-new trade counter onsite at its Leicester HQ. The integration of full EDI capabilities allowing for end to end data interchange with ASN (advance shipping notification) and SSCC labelling has also been rolled out, including EAN barcoded packaging improvements which are being introduced over the next 6-12 months.
Maybury continued: “2017 has been another big year for us and along with everything we had planned, we will see even more changes as we start the new year. We know a dedicated transport solution will be purchased to service the London area, and we know we will be adding full online account management to our website for all customers. Our product packaging is being overhauled to include a brand-new look and clearer information, as well as EAN barcoding. 2018’s biggest plans include substantial expansion to our production capabilities and warehousing facilities too and we will update everyone soon on those developments.”
