This year’s Financial Times “FT1000” list of Europe’s fastest growing companies features some UK security success stories. The list, which comprises the top 1000 companies in 31 countries across Europe that have achieved the highest percentage growth in revenues between 2013 and 2016, includes Send For Help and Hadrian Technology.

Send For Help, the lone worker protection firm, was ranked 625th on the list, thanks to revenue growth of 254% between 2013-2016 and an annual turnover of £8m for financial year 2016/17. Total staff numbers in 2016 stood at 70, a rise of 34% over the same period.

“It has been a very busy year for Send For Help and to be featured on such a stellar list is testament to the hard work and dedication of the whole team,” said James Murray, CEO of Send For Help. “Demand for our services has risen for a variety of reasons. Our technology is cutting edge, affordable and easy to use. Employers increasingly recognise the legal, financial and reputational implications, should their staff get injured or assaulted as a result of not implementing effective safeguards to prevent it” he added.

Hadrian Technology has been listed for a second consecutive year in the FT 1000. The news came as Hadrian celebrated a record quarter and an impressive start to 2018. The company’s order book for the year already exceeded work undertaken in 2017 by a significant margin.

Hadrian Technology Co-Founder Gary Trotter, said: “We’re immensely proud to yet again be recognised in the FT 1000 and to be named as the highest ranking business in the North East of England in the league table. Being named as both an Inc. 5000 Europe and FT 1000 fastest growing company is a tremendous accolade.

“It’s been an exciting few years for us and we’ve got no plans to stop there – we’ve just celebrated a record quarter for the business and have recently scooped a significant tender opportunity with a local council. It promises to be a great year!”
