We always knew we had the very best team of heating, plumbing and electrical professionals in Sussex, Surrey and Hampshire at Paine Manwaring, but…

Every year BDO (the leading firm of accountants and business advisers for AIM listed companies) releases an annual report which celebrates the Best in Business in Surrey and Sussex.

And in this year’s publication we’ve been named as fourth on the top twenty list of mid-market companies displaying the fastest growth for the whole of Sussex!

Paine Manwaring took one of the top spots, thanks to a phenomenal 83% Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) in 2017.

In talking of our success over the last year, Sam Ede, Finance Director, put the exceptional growth down to the increased ability to offer professional contractors a combination of both mechanical and electrical services together with strong core values in providing a first class service for all clients.

Sam added: “In this tricky market, we are looking to maintain the excellent level of service that we have achieved and looking ahead, our aim is to consolidate our position in the market even further.”

Throughout 2017, examples of the mechanical and electrical services which Paine Manwaring carried out included work on a new wing at Southlands Hospital and an extension to the sports facilities at top prep school Windlesham House.

In recognition of the companies which were celebrated as the Best in Business, BDO Partner, Kevin Cook, said: “The Best in Business have continued to grow sales and profits in spite of the rising inflation, volatile exchange rates and prevailing uncertainty over Brexit that dominated the headlines for most of last year.

“These predominantly privately owned firms are resilient in the face of challenges; they have stability, ambition and are planning for the future. They are what we at BDO call the UK’s economic engine because they continually perform exceptionally well in sales, profits and job creation”.

The Paine Manwaring team is very much looking forward to a whole range of mechanical and electrical projects that lie ahead for us in partnership with major construction firms in 2018!
