Guarding company Securiplan PLC has moved up 50 places in the latest annual “Sunday Times PriceWaterhouseCoopers Profit Track 100 league table published on April 10.
Securiplan, ranked 74th last year, is now ranked 24th in the Profit Track 100 which lists the 100 privately-owned British companies with the fastest-growing profits.
Past success stories from the league table include Carphone Warehouse, Dyson and Travelex. While the 2005 Profit Track 100 includes names such as celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay’s restaurant group, Philip Green’s Arcadia Group, Friends Reunited and Simon Fuller’s 19 Entertainment, the company behind Pop Idol, which was sold last month for £100m.
Securiplan chief executive Phillip Ullmann believes success is driven by every member of the team. He says: "Ground breaking initiatives such as the security officers charter, which maps out our relationship with our employees, above industry average training at all levels, converts into staff satisfaction. Our investment in people and resultant low staff turnover levels enable us to avoid expensive recruitment and training costs, creating impressive bottom line performance."
