Sunday Times International Track 200
For the second year in a row, Greencroft Bottling Company Ltd has been named in the Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200.
We’ve been listed at 83 in the report which ranks Britain’s mid-market private companies with the fastest-growing overseas sales.
Greencroft is the only UK wine bottler listed within the report, and one of only two wine businesses included. The other being Surrey’s Les Caves de Pyrene at no 153. Aberdeen’s BrewDog is also included at 193 in the report.
In the 2016 financial year, our company reported international sales worth £6.4m, an increase of 17.5% from 2015.
Mark Satchwell is Greencroft Bottling’s Managing Director: “There’s no denying the last 12 months have been tough for any business, especially those of us working on an international scale. Our continued success is credit to the hard work of the entire Greencroft Bottling team.
“Whatever Brexit may bring, we know we can’t stand still. Which is why we’ve taken the conscious decision to invest inwardly to not only protect our legacy but also ready us for growth. The last financial year saw a £3million investment in our filling lines and labellers, increasing capacity by 25% making Greencroft not only the most modern wine and spirit bottling facility in Europe, but also one of the largest.
“Importantly, we still have room to grow and are looking positively towards the next 12 months of business.”
