Derbyshire is home to 38 of the East Midlands’ 200 fastest growing businesses, according to a new report.

The East Midlands Top 200 report provides a detailed financial analysis of the region’s fastest-growing companies which are managed and run from the East Midlands, covering Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Lincolnshire.

Phil Sayers, partner in Grant Thornton’s, who produced the report said: “The Top 200 focuses on the companies run and managed from the East Midlands, ranking them based on profit growth over a three year period commencing 2009/2010.

“In this period, the East Midlands Top 200 increased profits at a rate of 25.7 percent per year to approximately £3.5 million, no mean feat especially in a period when UK GDP fell an average three percent per annum.”
