The 2020 Thames Valley SME 100 Growth Index is launched this month – focusing on the small and medium-sized enterprises that are significantly growing their turnover

Supported by law firm Herrington Carmichael, business advisers Wilson Partners, and commercial property consultants Hicks Baker, the Growth Index highlights fast-rising SMEs in the region.

At the top is Evergen, the Maidenhead-based solar panel installer – the company has provided solar for hundreds of residential properties, companies, schools and even a town hall.

Throughout the list, successful Thames Valley companies shine out. They include:

At number 4 is Blue Array, the Reading-based SEO specialist. Launched in 2015, the company is now the leading SEO agency/consultancy of its type in the UK.

At number 18, HeleCloud is a cloud management and training business. Established by a group of corporate technophiles, the company is backed by Business Growth Fund.

At number 20, Exclaimer is a Farnborough-based email signature software specialist. Founded in 2001, the company has over 100 employees and more than 75 million users worldwide.

At number 28, Amberjack, based in Newbury, is a recruitment specialist using technology to deliver solutions for blue-chip clients. Last year the company secured a £17.6m investment from private equity firm LDC.

This is the second year of the Growth Index. In 2019 companies were invited to a networking event at Laithwaites showroom in Theale, staged by The Business Magazine.

This year, SME 100 companies are invited to a summer networking and awards evening at an exciting new venue – details of which will be posted on the Growth Index page on our website soon.
