James and James has been ranked #736 on the FT1000 – the Financial Times’ list of Europe’s fastest-growing companies, compiled with Statista.
It is the second year running that the company has made the cut, thanks to consistent growth in both revenues (up 240% between 2014 and 2017) and employee numbers (up 85 people over the same period).
This year, the technology sector is the largest in the league table, with 149 businesses listed. eCommerce, retail and transport firms also make up a large chunk of the list, highlighting the strength of the sectors James and James operates in.
James Hyde, Co-founder and CEO, says: “Joining the FT1000 in 2018 was a real honour. Maintaining our ranking this year demonstrates the health of our business – our expertise, processes and technology help online retailers grow, which in turn helps us grow.”
The FT1000 listing is the latest in a string of accolades that James and James has received. It follows inclusion in the Fast Track 100 and Inc. 5000 lists of high-growth companies, a Queen’s Award for Enterprise, and a recent showcase in The Parliamentary Review, as a “best practice representative”.
It all began in 2010, when James Hyde and James Strachan couldn’t find a modern shipping service for the eCommerce business they ran. Faced with messy warehouses based on out-dated systems, they decided to build their own. We’ve not stood still since, helping hundreds of online brands scale up – and scaling with them.
