The awards cap a memorable year for the SBM group who are committed to helping people save money on their household expenditure through the provision of money saving products and services. Save Britain Money have experienced unprecedented success in the last 12 months growing their workforce to over 1000 and expanding the business to provide help to even more households across the UK.
The Wales Fast Growth 50 awards, which was started 14 years ago to recognise the best of Welsh indigenous business, showcased companies that have made a real difference within their sectors and at this time of economic difficulties, have created jobs within their local communities.
The awards were open to independent, privately owned Welsh businesses and were based on percentage growth of revenues from 2009 to 2011. Professor Dylan Jones-Evans is the creator of the awards and said: “This year’s list of the fastest growing firms show that across all parts of Wales, the business community is recovering after the worst recession in living memory with an overall turnover for 2012 of more than £3bn.
Secretary of State for Wales, David Jones extended his congratulations to the winners of the Fast Growth 50 awards. “Each and every one of the Fast Growth 50 companies are making a significant contribution to our shared goal and I wish them every success for the years ahead.”
Nev Wilshire, CEO of Save Britain Money responded to the awards presented to him. “Tonight has been a real recognition of the entrepreneurial spirit that exists in Welsh business, and offers our economy real hope for the future. I was proud to accept these awards on behalf of all my staff who have worked tirelessly to make this success possible.”
The full list and profiles of Wales Fast Growth 50 will be published on Wednesday 19th September.
