National recognition for AJN’s impressive sales performance
AJN Steelstock, which has steel sites in Newmarket, Suffolk and Henstridge, Somerset, has been recognised as one of the fastest-growing companies in the UK in terms of its outstanding sales performance.
The Sunday Times Grant Thornton Top Track 250 league table ranks Britain’s private mid-market growth companies with the biggest sales and AJN Steelstock has entered the ranking for the first time – positioned at 210 in the highly regarded listing. The league table also signposts the company’s strong contribution to its local and regional economy.
The Sunday Times Grant Thornton Top Track 250 also singles out the use of AJN’s steel in major buildings including the Aston Martin’s Welsh production factory, Google’s London headquarters, together with the nationally significant Abbey Road recording studios and the Tate Modern.
AJN Steelstock’s turnover has increased year-on-year for the last 16 years and in 2018 saw its sales growth surge to over £137 million – a 16% increase on the previous 12 months, justifying its entry into the coveted list of top performing companies.
The company employs 375 people split between its two stockyards from where it supplies high-grade steel for construction projects across the United Kingdom.
Commenting, AJN Steelstock’s Finance Director, Courtney Bell, said: “It is hugely gratifying to have all the hard work and dedication shown by everyone who works with us recognised in this way.
“The Sunday Times Grant Thornton Top Track 250 is now in its 15th year and has established itself as a barometer of the health of Britain’s mid-size private companies. We are delighted to be included.
“Our inclusion in the Top Track 250, isn’t just good news for AJN Steelstock, it is also a much-needed good news story for the UK steel industry.”
