Briggs & Forrester are delighted to announce that we have been named as a Top 100 company in the 2019 Northamptonshire Limited report by Grant Thornton UK.
Northamptonshire Limited is part of an annual series of business analysis by county initiated by Grant Thornton, which provides an in-depth financial analysis of the county’s 100 privately owned companies based on turnover.
Turnover in Northamptonshire increased by 6% from £5.34bn to £5.65bn, and there are also strong signs of an appetite for future growth with a net increase in fixed assets of 6.2%, to £1.4bn. Meanwhile, the total number of employees has risen by 2.5% (to a total of 25,616) and average salaries have grown by 4.5% to £35,190.
Mike Hughes, who leads the Advisory team at Grant Thornton’s Northampton office said: “Businesses in the county are known for their strength and resilience, but the lingering uncertainties over Brexit and current economic challenges seem to be taking their toll. That said, there are businesses which have performed incredibly well. Meanwhile, an increase in the number of employees and a 4.5% average salary increase will help the local economy. Ongoing investment in assets such as plant, equipment and vehicles is also evidence that businesses have confidence in future growth”
