The results are in, the league table has been published and Vision is delighted to announce that it has achieved a spot in the acclaimed Sunday Times International Track 200 for the third time; appearing at number 54 for 2017.
The prestigious league table is published annually, organised by the Sunday Times and HSBC, and ranks mid-market private companies from across the UK who have achieved some of the fastest growing international sales year-on-year.
As a leading supplier and distributor of specialist, luxury and performance textiles, Vision has now firmly cemented its place in the international supply chain after ranking 26th in 2014, and 46th in the 2016 table.
Continued Growth in International Markets
Managing Director, Laurie Thomas, said: “This is absolutely fantastic news for Vision, once again. As leaders in the market, our loyal and esteemed customer base demands we stay ahead of competitors, meet ethical sourcing and environmental requirements and this has been at the forefront of our focus over the last year.
Since our inception in 2005, we’ve gone from a relatively unknown name in the market to having over 6,500 customers across 85 countries and five continents.
It’s this growth that has helped us take our three overseas offices to a total number of seven and with accreditations such as our AEO status, our ISO accreditations and our continued investment into our technical and warehousing infrastructure, we aim to build upon and nurture our international presence over the next three years. “
Vision finds itself among some of the most renowned names in UK industry including fashion retailer Missguided, soup and food company Baxters, and cinema operator, Vue. The prestigious title now means that Vision will receive a certificate and glass trophy as well an invite to an exclusive awards dinner later in the year.
Laurie continued: “Undoubtedly, the success of Vision, and particularly our international trade, is down to our people. It’s these people who live and breathe our values and ethos and it’s these people who we’ve invested in to help deliver the Vision offering the world over. Our customers don’t buy from companies, they buy from people and it’s through our people that we’ve shown we’re much more than just a box of sheets.”
