UKFast honoured in Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500

Manchester-based UKFast has completed another award-winning year with a place on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500 EMEA Ranking.

Reporting a 690 per cent growth over the last five years, the UK’s leading hosting provider has followed its success in the Deloitte Fast 50 with a top half finish in their prestigious industry rankings for Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

“We are extremely pleased to have been recognised by Deloitte as one of the region’s fastest-growing technology companies,” said managing director Lawrence Jones. “This award has successfully concluded another year of tremendous growth and industry recognition.”

The Deloitte Technology Fast 500 EMEA Ranking identifies the top public and private technology, media and telecommunications companies headquartered in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. One of the industry’s most objective rankings, the results are based on revenue performance over the past five years.

Despite the economic downturn the average five-year revenue growth for the 2009 rankings has increased by 1,470 per cent for the top 500, exceeding the figures from the previous year. Reversing last year’s outcome, the UK has also regained its position as the home of the highest concentration of Technology Fast 500 EMEA companies back from France.

Named the UK’s Best Hosting Provider for four years consecutively by the ISPA, UKFast has amassed over 3,000 clients including UKTV, Chelsea Football Club and Mulberry. With a team that now exceeds more than 100 staff, it also covers all areas of internet provision, hosting sales, technical support, design and copywriting.
