Local sports equipment retailer, Net World Sports, which was founded in Kinnerley, has secured a spot on not one, but two esteemed league tables, ranking in both The Sunday Times BDO Profit Track 100 and the FT1000 Europe’s Fastest Growing Companies.

This is the second consecutive year that Net World Sports, which is now based in Wrexham, has placed in The Sunday Times BDO Profit Track 100, as they jump 33 positions since 2017 to 33 out of 100. The sports company has also rocketed straight in at 407 in FT1000 Europe’s Fastest Growing Companies, ranking alongside the likes of Deliveroo, Soltec and HelloFresh. Compiled by The Financial Times and Statista, the FT1000 lists the companies in 31 European countries that have achieved the highest compound growth rate in revenue between 2013 and 2016.

With an annual profit growth of 79 per cent a year over the qualifying period, reaching £5.1 million in 2017, Net World Sports is one of four Welsh businesses to make the cut in this year’s Sunday Times BDO Profit Track 100.

Alex Lovén, Managing Director of Net World Sports, said: “To be recognised in both the Sunday Times BDO Profit Track 100 for a second year running and FT1000 Europe’s Fastest Growing Companies, is a truly deserved achievement for our fantastic team who have worked extremely hard over the past twelve months. Each and every department has gone above and beyond to make a difference and having moved up 33 places since last year in the Sunday Times BDO Profit Track 100 and jumping straight in at 407 in the FT1000 list only reinforces the efforts they have put in to secure our positions.

“With our profits reaching over the £5M mark, we have been able to make great headway with the ambitious plans we set last year for long-term sustainable growth.

“We have some exciting product development lined up for 2018 and can’t wait to continue exceeding the growth plans we have set for both the UK and internationally.”

These table rankings come after a successful month of award wins for Net World Sports, which saw them take home the top spot at a number of prestigious ceremonies, including ‘International Trading Business of the Year’ at Insider’s North Wales Business Leaders Awards 2018 and ‘Business Exporter of the Year’ at the FSB Wales Celebrating Small Business Awards 2018. The UK’s biggest-selling football goal manufacturer was also honoured at the Retail Week Awards 2018 last month, receiving a ‘Mark of Excellence’ for their ongoing going international sales success.
