Growing waste management company, Red Industries, has ranked at number 57 in the Sunday Times Virgin Atlantic listing of the fastest growing privately owned companies.

Red Industries are delighted to feature in The Sunday Times Virgin Atlantic Fast Track 100 league table for the second time.  Published on 6th December 2020, the 24th annual Sunday Times Virgin Atlantic Fast Track 100 league table ranks Britain’s private companies with the fastest-growing sales.

The Staffordshire headquartered waste management company, which is the highest ranking waste management company on the list, has achieved continued success through organic growth as well as a number of strategic acquisitions.  2020 has certainly been challenging for businesses due to the COVID pandemic and Red Industries has ably adapted to move further up the ranks from position 73 in 2019.

Adam Share, CEO of Red Industries said “to feature in The Sunday Times Virgin Atlantic Fast Track 100 league table is a fantastic achievement – we’re pleased to have, for the second time, received this recognition of our continued drive for excellence and sustainable growth.  It’s a real testament to the hard work of all our team at Red, and we look forward to continued success in 2021.”

Red Industries is an innovative waste management company, servicing customers across the UK with their hazardous and non-hazardous waste management solutions and industrial cleaning services.  Originally founded in Stoke-on-Trent in 2006, the expanding company now have three sites in Staffordshire as well as further facilities and offices in the West Midlands.  Part of their growth has come through strategic acquisitions of other waste companies, Environmental Resource Group and Haz Industrial Services, which has enabled them to increase their service offering and client base.

The success of the business also benefits the communities in which they are based through employment opportunities, support for local charities including The Donna Louise, and their Landfill Communities Fund which has awarded over £1.4million to community groups in the Staffordshire area.

The Fast Track 100 is sponsored by Virgin Atlantic, Barclays, BDO, DHL and N+1 Singer, and is compiled by Fast Track, the Oxford-based research and networking events firm.
