Impressive sales figures have seen national energy efficiency solutions provider, Anesco, named in the Sunday Times Grant Thornton Top Track 250 league table for the first time.
The Reading-based company, which works with businesses, local authorities, housing associations and homeowners to reduce their carbon emissions, has been ranked 212th in the high profile listing that highlights Britain’s leading private mid-market growth companies with the biggest sales.
In the last financial year Anesco increased its revenue by 50%, generating a turnover of £160.2million and an EBITDA of £21million. The company’s workforce has also grown to in excess of 150 permanent members of staff, with up to 600 contractors and 103 supply chain partners and logistics staff employed at any one time.
The company forecasts turnover will exceed £200 million in the current financial year as the business continues to develop and expand in new areas, including its battery storage solutions. It also predicts sustained growth for existing products and services, such as the ESCO model that enables organisations to install energy efficiency measures at no cost and its renewable asset monitoring and maintenance service AnescoMeter.
