The BDO Coventry and Warwickshire Growth Barometer 2017 tracks the growth of the leading performers in the region and seeks to bring wider recognition to the economic progress being made across the area.
Published in March at the Coventry Economic Forum event, the Barometer identifies the 50 fastest growing local companies. Businesses from nine different sectors appear on the list, with manufacturing and engineering companies making up 14 of the top 50.
BDO is an international network of public accounting, tax and advisory firms. In the UK it operates from 18 offices, covering all major business centres across the country.
Whitefurze owner and managing director Philip Lanni said: “We’re delighted to have been recognised as a top contributor to the region’s economic success. It’s well known that the Coventry and Warwickshire region is built on manufacturing and we’re proud of our ‘Made in Britain’ heritage and credentials.
“Over the past five years we have implemented an ongoing programme of investment and new product development creating new jobs across all areas of the business.”
Established in 1978, the Coventry-based privately owned company manufactures plastic household and outdoor products. It occupies 160,000sq ft of warehouse space and houses 39 injection moulding machines at its production facility.
Philip added: “We will be celebrating our 40th anniversary next year and will continue to invest in technology, warehousing, production and people. Our aim is continuous growth and improvement and we will continue to bolster what is already a sustainable foundation for ongoing growth and prosperity.”
