Astro – a company to inspire Britain
For the second year running Astro Lighting has been identified as one of London Stock Exchange's 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain. The report is a celebration of the UK's fastest-growing and most dynamic small and medium sized businesses (SMEs).
To be included in the list, companies needed to show consistent revenue growth over a minimum of three years, significantly outperforming their industry peers.
Writing in the report, Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne said: "UK high-growth businesses are leading the charge in rebuilding our economy. These companies are the backbone of the British economy. They create high-quality, well paid jobs, innovate and drive economic growth."
"2016 is another big year for Astro" said Founder John Fearon. "We move into a new purpose-built 86,000-sq ft headquarters in June and this will be our first full year with our new division in the United States.
"We have done well because our lighting is approachable, honest and inspiring, which is also how we do business. Our passion for quality goes far beyond the technical excellence of our products. It drives us to achieve the highest possible standards of customer service and professionalism in everything we do."
