Sharing in Growth beneficiary ATL Turbine Services, a Dundee based turbine component repair company, has just been confirmed as making the Sunday Times SME Export Track 100. The list ranks Britain’s 100 small and medium-sized (SME) companies with the fastest-growing international sales over the latest two years, with ATL placed at number 20.
There were strict entry criteria with companies having to demonstrate total sales of between £5m and £25m of which international sales had to be at least 20% and a minimum of £150,000. Companies also had to show profitability and year on year export sales growth.
Dale Harris, CEO of ATL commented, “Following a regional export award win last year, this listing is further recognition of our growth and penetration into export markets which we are extremely proud of. Having a Dundee based company in the top 20% of national SMEs is a terrific result. We couldn’t have achieved this without a great team behind us and gaining this national recognition is testament to their constant focus on service delivery.”
ATL has been a member of Sharing in Growth, the government-backed national competitiveness programme since May 2017 which has aided the company’s productivity drive. Sharing in Growth’s CEO Andy Page said, “Sharing in Growth is delighted to have supported ATL with their export achievements and we congratulate them on their success in securing the long-term viability of the business which will create additional jobs in the Dundee area.”
Sharing in Growth beneficiaries LPW Carpenter Additive and Rockford have both won places in the table as top exporters.
