Wyevale Garden Centres rises in Top Track 250 list

Wyevale Garden Centres has been recognised by the annual Sunday Times Grant Thornton Top Track 250 as one of the UK's 250 leading private mid-market growth companies.

WGC is the only garden centre retailer featured in the league table and this year was ranked at number 83 this year, compared to 2014 when it ranked at 96.

The Sunday Times Grant Thornton Top Track 250 ranks Britain’s top private mid-market companies with the largest sales, including those who have increased sales or operating profit by at least 10 per cent over the last year.

Wyevale Garden Centres chief executive Kevin Bradshaw said: "We are delighted to be featured in this year’s Sunday Times Grant Thornton Top Track 250, coming in at number 83. We are ranked alongside Britain’s best and most-loved companies and we are proud of this achievement as it recognises our contribution to strengthening the UK’s economy.

"Our improved ranking year on year demonstrates that our aims to strengthen the garden retail market as whole have been fruitful. We are the only garden centre retailer in the list, highlighting our ongoing success of nurturing our business, growing the garden retail market and driving recognition of the joy this British past-time brings to all."

Kevin Bradshaw attended the awards dinner in London on 9 October. The ceremony honoured the owners and directors of all the companies who made it onto the league tables, including Wyevale Garden Centres.
