Blue Group Ranked 31st in The Sunday Times HSBC International Tracked 200 post

The league table has been produced for its 12th year by Fast Track, the Oxford firm that researches Britain’s top-performing private companies. This year’s special COVID-19 edition recognises the impressive performance of the 200 businesses and their contributions to the economy during the pandemic.

The Blue Group is made up of a number of companies operating across the UK and Ireland, however, only the Group-owned companies were taken into account for this ranking, which includes the likes of Blue Spares and Murray Plant.

With an average growth of 82.28% in International sales per annum over the last two years, Blue is establishing itself within overseas markets. Having made number 31 out of 200 on the list, we had some great coverage in today’s (21st February 2021) Sunday Times Newspaper. The coverage includes a summary of Blue that read:

“Blue Group sells a wide range of equipment to the quarrying and demolition, recycling, scrap and energy sectors. Operating throughout the lockdowns, it invested in spare parts and continued to deliver cranes, crushers and industrial shredders to customers across the UK and Ireland. It also sells used equipment worldwide. Under co-founder and chairman Pat McGeary,68, it boosted exports to £2.5million in 2019”.

It is great to be recognised on such a prestigious list, especially within this COVID-19 Edition, as we have worked hard to keep our customers up and running throughout the pandemic.
