Global e-commerce gifting specialist Hemingways has been named as one of the 50 fastest growing companies in Yorkshire.

The prestigious Ward Hadaway Yorkshire Fastest 50 Awards, in association with The Yorkshire Post, celebrate growth, innovation and the commercial achievements of the county’s businesses.

Based on financial data filed with Companies House, the list ranks the 50 best-performing privately-owned companies which have consistently increased turnover in the past three financial years, whilst remaining profitable.

Hemingways was ranked 26th with turnover growing from £74m in 2018 to £129m in 2020. The company has since posted its 2021 accounts showing continued growth up to £200m

Growth was driven primarily by new consumer and corporate product innovation, created by Hemingways’ I.T. and development teams for its retail client base across 17 countries.

Last year Hemingways also expanded the scope of its technical capabilities with the strategic acquisition of Microsoft Gold Partner software company, Bliss-Systems.

“Congratulations to Hemingways and every company in the Ward Hadaway Yorkshire Fastest 50 for 2022 for their tremendous achievements.

Across a range of sectors we are seeing regional businesses succeeding, through tenacity, determination and a desire to succeed.

They show no fear in the face of adversity and are prepared to change, adapt and rise to the challenge, whatever that may be.

This year’s Fastest 50 list, as always, boasts many management teams with an unwavering passion to succeed who have created high growth, profitable businesses. It’s this spirit, and the business success that it creates, that we are delighted to celebrate.”

Emma Digby is Executive Partner at Ward Hadaway’s, Leeds Office
