NES was proud to be listed on the 18th annual Sunday Times HSBC Top Track 100 league table which ranks Britain’s 100 private companies with the biggest sales.

There were 11 companies headquartered in the northwest of England who were cited as having made a significant contribution to the regional economy.

We were thrilled to appear alongside well-known British names, including Clarks, JCB, John Lewis Partnership and Specsavers.

The league table programme is sponsored by HSBC, Linklaters and PwC, and compiled by Fast Track, the Oxford-based research and networking events firm.

Amanda Murphy, Head of Commercial Banking, HSBC UK, commented:

“Once again, Britain’s most ambitious private enterprises have shown their mettle by shrugging off uncertainty, growing their combined sales 14% to a record £220bn. It's reassuring that UK businesses are navigating change so confidently and the companies in the Top Track 100 are an inspiration to all. The 11 companies in the northwest are the kinds of firms that provide the backbone of our economy, and we at HSBC UK are thrilled to see them thrive.”

The full league table is published as a six-page supplement with the business section of The Sunday Times on 7 July, both in print and in the digital edition, and on
