Following a number of business and awards accolades last year, including taking home the ‘Manufacturing Excellence Trophy’ at the Scale Up Awards and winning the ‘Family Business of the Year’ at the East of England FSB Awards, plus our Managing Director Stuart being selected for the prestigious Suffolk 100 list, we’re ecstatic to start 2023 having been named as one of the top 100 SMEs in the UK!
The ‘EB100’ list is Britain’s definitive official list that recognises and celebrates excellence in the SME community. Businesses spanning every sector are ranked across a wide variety of criteria, ranging from their longevity in the marketplace and year-on-year growth, to how they embrace innovation and contribute to the community. To be ranked in the top 100 at 17th position is a real testament to our team and shows our strength, vision and resilience as one of the UKs fastest growing SMEs.
The SME industry contributes over £2 trillion turnover to the UK economy, employing 44% of the British workforce. The last 12 months have been challenging for many businesses navigating a landscape of hardship, however, SMEs have demonstrated remarkable resilience to survive and thrive.
Scott English, Brand Director at Elite Business commented: “Caribbean Blinds are change-makers in the British business industry and deserve their place in the Elite Business Top 100. This definitive league table exemplifies the very best SMEs in the UK. It was highly competitive, with judges commenting on the high standard of entries, impressive sales and growth figures and high-performing cultures.”
Our Managing Director Stuart added: “We are extremely proud and honoured to have been named as one of the Top 100 SMEs in the UK – and to have been ranked so highly too. To be recognised by the judges as a high-growth and innovative business that has the potential to continue to scale, and against such strong competition, reinforces that our business model is working. We couldn’t have asked for a more positive start to the year, and we look forward to what the rest of 2023 will bring!”
