Gaia Technologies is delighted to announce that they have been included in the Wales Business Insider Top 100 Growth List for 2014. They have also been placed inside the top 10, with an impressive final ranking of 9th. Furthermore, they is the only North Wales-based company in the top 10, making Gaia the fastest growing company in North Wales.
The Growth 100 list, produced by Insider Media Wales, compiles the top 100 fastest growing companies in Wales, based on the annual average growth of turnover over a five year period. All 100 companies had an average annual growth rate of over 8% and every company in the top 10 had an average annual growth rate over 30%. The last time the list was compiled, it included just 75 companies (as there were not enough companies with sufficient growth to justify a full list of 100).
This year’s list, which is packed with 100 businesses with an average growth of more than 8%, and topped by Swansea City FC, who had a staggering 155% growth, is a testament to the confidence and performance of Welsh businesses and, with even more companies growing at impressive rates across the country this year, Gaia’s final ranking of 9th is even more impressive.
Anas Mawla, the Managing Director of Gaia Technologies had this to say about the news:
“I am extremely pleased to hear that we are in the top 10 growing companies in Wales, and that we are listed alongside such companies as Swansea City (1st) and Dawnus Developments (11th)”
Gaia Technologies is committed to contributing to the growth of the local economy, and inclusion on this list shows that we are succeeding in our aim.
It is great to see that we are part of a larger movement among many Welsh businesses that are also showing similar signs of growth.
The ongoing success of Gaia Technologies is the result of the hard work of our talented and dedicated staff. We are well positioned in our niche market of providing ICT solutions for schools and Academies, and are very confident that we can continue this growth into the future”
Gaia’s ranking of 9th on the list adds to Gaia’s other accolades this year, namely being included in the Top 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain, where they were one of only 16 Welsh companies on the list. Not only is Gaia Technologies now recognised as one of the most inspirational companies in Wales, they are also one of the fastest growing Welsh Businesses.
