I'm proud to announce that we have been ranked as number 186 of the UK's 250 mid market companies with the biggest sales.
Just a few weeks ago I wrote about my excitement that CitySprint had been selected for The Sunday Times Top Track 250. I'm proud to announce that we have been ranked as number 186 of the UK's 250 mid market companies with the biggest sales.
To be in company that's as illustrious as Virgin Active, McLaren and Travelodge amongst numerous others is a huge milestone for the business, and reflects just how far we've come in recent years. It feels particularly apt following a year in which we launched two new parts of the CitySprint business – LastMileLink Technologies, our technology incubator, and On the dot, our one hour timeslot service for retailers and consumers – made four acquisitions, and produced a strong financial performance.
In 2015, our turnover was 14.1% higher at £146 million, and EBITDA increased by 24.4%, reaching 16.8 million. We’re confident that we can continue to build on this, sustainably.
I’d like to use this happy occasion to thank the management team, who have shared my vision of a CitySprint that nurtures cutting edge technology, expands into new and exciting markets, and occupies a position as market leader.
But this ambition could not have become a reality without the hard work of our people, who push tirelessly to deliver the first class service that our customers value so much. To the CitySprint family: well done to all of you for this well-deserved recognition.
