Nottingham Post lists ‘Top 200’ Nottinghamshire companies by turnover

Businesses featured in the Nottingham Post’s Nottinghamshire’s Top 200 Companies 2017 supplement – published free in today’s paper (September 12) – have a joint turnover of £35.7billion and employ 225,000 people.

The annual Post supplement ranks businesses by turnover (highest first). To be eligible for inclusion companies must:

  • be active during the applicable period (i.e. not in receivership or dormant), in the 2017 edition’s case meaning active between July 1, 2015, and June 30, 2016;
  • have their registered office in Nottinghamshire;
  • report independent accounts to Companies House.

Six of the companies in today’s supplement brought in revenue exceeding £1billion and several others are approaching that milestone.

For the third year running, Boots UK took the top spot with a turnover of almost £12billion. Now part of Walgreens Boots Alliance, more than 8,000 people are employed at Boots UK’s Nottingham headquarters.

Car retailer Pendragon, which owns dealership brands Evans Halshaw and Stratstone, was again runner-up with a turnover of £4.4billion.

Special awards handed out at this morning’s supplement launch, held at Nottingham’s Hart’s Hotel and Restaurant, included ‘Highest New Entry’ (at 117 out of 200), for digital communications company Esendex Topco of Nottingham.

A ‘Highest Climber’ award was also given to tram network operator Tramlink Nottingham, which jumped from 152nd place in the 2016 supplement to 69th this year (2017). The award was collected on behalf of Tramlink by the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership’s Chief Executive David Ralph, as Tramlink’s Chairman Peter Richardson is also Chair of the D2N2 LEP.

The list was compiled by experts at the University of Derby and Nottingham Trent University.
