Woodway UK identified in London Stock Exchange Group’s ‘1000 Companies to Inspire Europe’

Woodway UK has been identified as one of London Stock Exchange Group’s 1000 Companies to Inspire Europe. The report is a celebration of the EU’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.

Woodway UK have grown over 34 years from selling a range of packaging materials to local businesses to supplying major high street retailers, ecommerce retailers and third party logistics companies with all their packaging requirements.

Woodway UK MD, Jason Inwood said: “We are delighted to have been selected as one of the 1000 Companies to Inspire Europe. In 2014 we were selected as one of the 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain so to now be included in the European report highlights the continued success Woodway have had through our dedicated team. We have seen growth year on year and with this we have invested back in the business by employing more staff, developing the skills of existing staff and investing in our products and services to our customers. To be recognised in such a prestigious report is testament to all the hard work of the Woodway Team over the years.”

Xavier Rolet, Chief Executive, London Stock Exchange Group said:

“This research shows high-growth SMEs are the driving force behind the European economy. While the public sector and big blue chip companies have not been creating jobs for many years now, these companies are growing and employing at an incredible rate. And because by definition these companies are innovators, these jobs tend to be higher skilled and higher paid, helping to give young Europeans the brighter economic future they deserve.

“So it is critical that we give these firms access to suitable growth finance that will enable them to invest, grow and become the big job providers of tomorrow.”
Commissioner Lord Hill said:

“The companies you will find in the ‘1,000 Companies to Inspire Europe’ report are all remarkable examples of European hard work and entrepreneurship. They come from all 28 EU Countries and from a wide range of business sectors. This report gives these companies the recognition they deserve. But more than that, I hope that by providing investors with a selection of companies with great potential ‘1,000 companies to Inspire Europe’ will make it easier for them to find opportunities and channel investment to SMEs that want to grow and compete in bigger markets, helping to make Capital Markets Union a reality.”
LSEG’s “1000 Companies to Inspire Europe” report has received international political support with contributions from, Markus Ferber MEP, Cora van Nieuwenhuizen MEP, Othmar Karas MEP, Alain Lamassoure MEP, Paul Tang MEP and Kay Swinburne MEP.

SMEs are at the heart of the European economy and supporting them to grow and innovate is vital to Europe’s long-term economic future. Part of this involves facilitating access to diverse sources of funding, as well as helping SMEs to think creatively about their financing options.
