Skyguard’s parent company, Send For Help Ltd has been ranked as one of Britain’s most successful private companies by The Sunday Times for a second consecutive year.
The 21st annual Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track 100 league table, published this week, champions the UK’s top performing private companies based strictly on financial performance with the fastest growing sales over their latest three years. Send For Help has been placed 80th.
Founded in 2010 by brothers James and Will Murray, Send for Help has prominently featured in the national press throughout the year as a real success story. Business continues to go from strength-to-strength. The company is now independently verified as the largest lone worker protection provider in the world.
Skyguard, along with its sister companies, Guardian24 and recently-acquired Peoplesafe, uses key fob sized GPS personal safety alarms and mobile phone apps to provide 24 hour personal protection to more than 150,000 lone workers and people who are at risk.
Send For Help showed turnover this year hitting £8m, up from £6.1m last year with profits of £2.4m — an increase of 121% on the previous year.
Chief Executive James Murray commented, “We are delighted to be included in the Fast Track 100 for a second year running. It’s been another busy, yet exciting year for the Group and that’s reflected in this accolade. It is a real honour to have our hard work and determination as a business recognised.”
“This has been a big year for Send For Help. We added a third brand to our growing portfolio with a successful and seamless transition. We expanded our office premises in Surrey and continue to recruit new talent across the company.”
“We won’t rest on our laurels. Our aim is to always improve, as individuals, as a business and with our service offering, and this award once again demonstrates and validates our approach.”
