The International Track 200 ranks Britain’s mid-market private companies with the fastest growing overseas sales. The Blue Group is made up of a number of companies operating across the UK and Ireland, however only the group-owned companies were taken into account for this ranking, which includes the likes of Blue Spares, BlueMAC and Murray Plant.
With an average growth of 82.28% in international sales per annum over the last two years, Blue says it is establishing itself within overseas markets.
The Sunday Times commented about its ranking of Blue Group: “Operating throughout the lockdowns, it invested in spare parts and continued to deliver cranes, crushers and industrial shredders to customers across the UK and Ireland. It also sells used equipment worldwide. Under co-founder and chairman Pat McGeary, 68, it boosted exports to £2.5m in 2019.”
The league table has been produced for its 12th year by Fast Track, the Oxford firm that researches Britain’s top performing private companies. This year’s special COVID-19 edition recognises the impressive performance of the 200 businesses and their contributions to the economy during the pandemic.
Blue Group commented on the recognition: "It is great to be recognised on such a prestigious list, especially within this COVID-19 Edition, as we have worked hard to keep our customers up and running throughout the pandemic."
