I can’t speak highly enough of LDC. They were founded as a regional private equity business. It’s not just the money, it’s the support they give you.”Chris Chidley, CEO
Fast-paced and sustainable growth
In 2017 SPS was recognised as one of Europe’s fastest growing businesses by the Financial Times, due to a 290 per cent revenue growth between 2012 and 2015.
In 2018 SPS announced it has accelerated its global growth plans after generating £150m turnover for the first time.
The group has recorded a 10 per cent increase of revenues year-on-year across all of its businesses. Its international arm, Driver Hire Australia, has also continued to go from strength-to-strength, reporting record sales of £12m, up £5m from the previous year.
The growth in revenue was largely due to strong demand for temporary works in the logistics and rail sectors as well as new contract wins with national, blue chip clients. The business is now looking ahead at further growth in the US market.
In 2019 SPS was recognised again in The Sunday Times International Track 200 for international sales growth of 55 per cent, placing 113th in the list.
