Published on the 10 June, the ninth annual Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200 league table ranks Britain’s mid market private companies with the fastest growing international sales. Print and marketing services provider Pureprint appears at 52 with international sales hitting £6.8 million in 2017 boosted by growth from the US and Europe and up 69.66% on the previous year.
The league table shows the resilience of Britain’s mid market exporters. Despite the uncertainty created by the on-going Brexit negotiations, their international sales have grown by an average of 62% a year over the last two years to a total of £10.1 billion, the highest growth rate since 2013. Together they employ 106,000 staff, having added 24,000 jobs over the period.
Mark Handford, CEO of Pureprint, commented: ‘Our international trade started with projects for our UK customers some years ago but in the last few years we have seen significant growth direct with companies based overseas. Our flexible and responsive approach to providing the best solutions combined with our award winning product quality is proving a winning combination in a number of different countries. For example, we are currently producing one of our biggest ever orders which is for a business with its head office in Europe. We are definitely seeing continued growth from international markets this year.’
