The Top Track 250 league table ranks Britain’s private mid-market growth companies with the biggest sales and is compiled by leading research and events company, Fast Track.

The Trade Centre Wales grew sales by 69% in 2017 (to £178 million), easily surpassing the criteria for listing which include sales growth in the last year of at least 5% and profit margins in excess of 2%.

Other businesses included in the league table this year include the RAC, Travelodge, Wagamama, Fat Face and Dreams.

Cruising into new regions

Tim Carr, chief financial officer of The Trade Centre Wales, said: “We’re thrilled to be included within The Sunday Times Grant Thornton Top Track 250 table. To be ranked amongst such big names is inspiring and our investment in our staff and premises across the UK will hopefully see us climb the rankings in the future.”

With sites in Neath, Merthyr Tydfil and Cardiff, The Trade Centre Wales also operate under Trade Centre UK, with sites in Wednesbury and Coventry; Europe’s largest used car showroom.

Tim continued: “This is an exciting time for The Trade Centre Wales as we continue to grow and expand from our head offices in Neath, South Wales.

“We’ve come a long way since our beginnings in 2000 and are continuing with the same level of customer service and professionalism that we did 18 years ago to strive to be the best that we can be.”

Bright future for UK’s fastest growing used car retailer

The awards will be presented at an event at the Royal Lancaster Hotel, London, on 20 November.

Tim said: “This award is a recognition of the tremendous efforts of our team and will inspire us all to continue to work hard to further establish our business across the UK. We will look forward to celebrating next month.”
