22 Feb 2021 2021 Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200
Purdicom is Recognised in The HSBC Sunday Times International Track 200, 2021
It’s hard to believe it’s been a whole year since we first hit the HSBC Sunday Times International Track 200 list in 2020. And what a year it’s been. Purdicom entered the Fast Track list at 132 in the league last year.
This year we have risen a considerable number of positions from 132 to 78.
An amazing achievement in what has been a challenging year.
With the majority of businesses now fully embracing digital transformation, in part, driven by the changing workplace over the last 12 months, organisations the world over have contributed to an increased demand for enterprise-level connectivity and cyber-security.
As a privately owned distributor of wireless technology and networks, Purdicom has continued to grow exponentially since its inception. Over the last two years, especially, the company has significantly expanded its reach internationally. Managing director Hugh Garrod, founded the business in 2005. Since then, its customer-base in Europe now accounts for 12 per cent of overall sales, which has helped boost international sales to £5.1 million (in 2019) and continues to grow.
This has been achieved through not only supplying the channel with outstanding vendor technologies and a portfolio of complementary solutions but also supporting our partners’ business growth through value-add and professional services, spanning every business function.
“Purdicom is once again delighted to be recognised in the Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200 Awards. This award is a testament to how well the team at Purdicom have worked together to drive our products, increase our sales around the world and grow our business.
Our Director of Business Development Chris Jennings deserves a mention for all his hard work and dedication in making this happen and we hope that Brexit does not dampen our efforts and enthusiasm going forward.
We would also like to thank the Sunday Times, HSBC and Fast Track for their recognition, which we are truly honoured to receive.”
Hugh Garrod, MD
Chris Jennings (Director of Business Development) had this to say about the company’s international success: “Purdicom’s increased presence in the international marketplace has gained strength from our unique distribution approach and the increasing opportunities in the MDU market. Once we strike a long-term customer partnership, we strive to deliver on our merits, increasing profitability for all parties involved.”
The Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200 ranks Britain’s mid-market private companies with the fastest-growing international sales, measured over their latest two years of available accounts. It is compiled by Fast Track and published in The Sunday Times in February.
