TWO Bolton businesses have made it onto the Sunday Times BDO Profit Track 100 league table which ranks Britain’s private companies with the fastest-growing profits over their last three years.

Plastics recycling group Toughsheet have been listed at 14 while vehicle parts retailer General Traffic were ranked at number 25.

Toughsheet reported a profit growth of 80per cent, and General Traffic growth of 74per cent.

Fifteen other companies headquartered in the north west have won places on the league table published at the weekend.

Previous companies ranked in the league table included Dyson, which featured in 2000.

The Profit Track 100 league table is sponsored by BDO, Santander and UBS Wealth Management, and is compiled by Fast Track, the Oxford-based research and networking events firm.

Ed Dwan, tax partner at BDO, said:“These ambitious, entrepreneurial-spirited businesses punch well above their weight and are vital for the UK economy; they invest and this investment also creates jobs.

“As the vaccine programme continues to be rolled out and lockdown restrictions are eased, high-growth businesses like these must have adequate support.

“We are pleased to see the range of business support measures in this year’s Budget.

“Developing and strengthening our innovation-focused economy is crucial and these businesses will play a key role in the UK’s wider economic recovery post-pandemic.”
