This year’s list contains businesses from a wide range of sectors that include consumer finance, engineering, manufacturing, travel and hospitaliity – to name but a few.
Colin Hewitt, partner and head of commercial at Ward Hadaway, said: “Once again, the Ward Hadaway Fastest 50 has delivered a fascinating insight into the breadth and range of companies which are succeeding in growing their businesses.
“The sheer variety of companies represented in the list demonstrates the continuing strength and vibrancy of the region’s business world and provides further fuel to the North East’s key role in the Northern Powerhouse agenda.
“In this list are 50 reasons to feel optimistic about the future of the North East economy and its importance to the UK and to global markets.
“All the businesses listed here are forging ahead and seeing their turnover grow whilst remaining profitable – they are real trailblazers who deserve our support, encouragement and our applause.”
As in previous years, the 2015 Ward Hadaway Fastest 50 has been compiled by independent researchers from St Chad’s College/Durham Business School using publicly available information from Companies House.
Following publication of the full A to Z list, the Fastest 50 Awards will take place at Baltic, the Centre for Contemporary Art in Gateshead on October 9 when the winners of the Fastest 50 2015 will be revealed.
Awards will be given to the fastest growing small, medium and large business with one of these three winners going on to be named the overall fastest growing North East business for 2015.
