Ecometrica has landed on the FT1000 list of Europe’s fastest growing companies for the second consecutive year. The placing was based on revenue growth of 226% in the three years to 2016.
It follows a stellar 2017, showing record sales and turnover figures and a string of high-profile new customers such as Standard Life Aberdeen, Freshfields, Alliance One International, and Verisk.
The FT, which compiled the list alongside Statista, said innovative and fast-growing companies were “the driving force of the European economy in the 21st century. They generate jobs and sustain Europe’s competitiveness.”
Gary Davis, CEO, said: “As we continue to grow rapidly, I expect we will be on this list for years to come. Our latest phase has seen us focus on export markets and expand geographically, especially in the Americas. We will continue to focus on satellite mapping, and I’m sure that growth will be an ongoing part of our story as more and more governments, organisations and industries wake up to the power of geospatial data and satellite mapping.”
Inclusion in the FT’s list comes as Ecometrica is shortlisted for Computing magazine’s Digital Technology Leaders Awards. The company is in the running for Best Public Sector Digital Project for Forests 2020, a £14.2m project funded by the UK Space Agency to protect over 300 million hectares of tropical forests across the world.
Davis added: “Our platform never stays still, and we are constantly thinking of new ways to adapt and improve it. Our R&D team actually works very closely with our customers as we aim to ensure it meets their current and future needs, so the product is a testament to their commitment to the Ecometrica platform, as well as to our belief and investment in its development.”
Ecometrica also made Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500 list for the second year thanks to its rapid growth, as well as being included on Inc.’s prestigious 5000 Europe list, which ranks the fastest-growing privately held companies in Europe. We were also shortlisted in the GP Bullhound Northern Tech Awards, which recognises the fastest growing exceptional technology companies in the North of England and Scotland.
With 2018 set to be a record-breaking year for Ecometrica, stay tuned for more updates!
