Specialist People Services and Fishawack make Sunday Times International Track 200

LDC-backed Specialist People Services (SPS) and Fishawack have been named two of the UK’s fastest growing businesses in the Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200. 

The league table ranks UK companies with the fastest-growing international sales, based on overseas revenues of £1m or more, and is compiled by Fast Track and published in The Sunday Times each June. 

Diversified recruitment group SPS has been recognised for the second year running. Since its launch in 2012, its Driver Hire Australia business has enjoyed rapid year-on-year growth and in the year ending March 2016 recorded international sales of £4.9m. 

It has also continued its expansion in Australia and in 2017 is set to open its fifth office. 

Fishawack, the specialist provider of scientific communications services, made its debut on the list after recording international sales of £24.8m in 2016. The company has offices in the US, India and Switzerland and has continued to grow internationally.
