D G Weaver Ltd. has been identified as one of London Stock Exchange’s 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain. The report is a celebration of the UK’s fastest-growing and most dynamic small and medium sized businesses.
To be included in the list, companies needed to show consistent revenue growth over a minimum of three years, significantly outperforming their industry peers. More detail on the methodology can be found in the report online at www.1000companies.com.
D G Weaver Ltd. first opened in the Rhondda in 1956 and has since expanded; opening the Llandow branch in 2001, followed by the flagship Talbot Green branch in 2010. We remain true to our roots as a family run business and as such we are better able to understand and cater to our customer’s needs. This approach has led to our success at establishing ourselves as the largest retail Ford dealers in the UK.
D G Weaver Ltd. Dealer Principal, David Weaver, says: “We are thrilled to be included in the 2015 1000 Companies report. To make such strides in an increasingly competitive marketplace is real testament to our focus on providing a great customer experience. We are extremely humbled to have been recognised by the LSE as at heart we are a still a family run business.”
Xavier Rolet, Chief Executive, London Stock Exchange Group said: “This report is a significant part of London Stock Exchange’s broader campaign to support UK high growth companies in their journeys from Start-up to Stardom and to create an entrepreneurship revolution. I’m delighted that a strong alliance between UK Government, financial market participants, investors, entrepreneurs and companies has been created to support these inspiring businesses.”
Companies included in the report had to meet certain criteria including being UK-registered and active, having revenues between £6 million and £250 million based on latest Companies House filings, and been in operation for at least three years.
Having identified a long list of eligible companies, the report’s authors then separated them into their Standard Classification (SIC) grouping and computed the average compound annual growth rate (CAGR) in percentage (based on turnover growth) for each SIC sector over a four-year period and within each SIC sector, then ranked companies by their individual CAGR percentage. The companies that had most outperformed their sector averages were then identified.
