Success in Fast Track 100 for Second Year

Worcester based Lioncourt Homes has achieved national success once again after being recognised by the Sunday Times for the second consecutive year as one of the fastest growing businesses in the UK.

The housebuilder has been placed at number 77 in the Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track 100 league table which ranks Britain’s 100 private companies with the fastest-growing sales over their latest three years. It is compiled by Fast Track and published in The Sunday Times each December, with an awards event the following May, and alumni dinners during the year. It is estimated that there is currently around 5.4 million private businesses in the UK.

Colin Cole, Chief Executive of Lioncourt Homes commented: “This is an outstanding achievement that underlines the great team approach at Lioncourt and how absolutely everyone in the business contributes to our success. We have enjoyed a sustained period of growth which is testament to having a strong investor base, sticking to our ten-year business plan, having two strong businesses, Lioncourt Homes and Lioncourt Strategic Land and maintaining a strong business ethos”.

Founded in 2006, by executive directors Colin Cole and Neil Chandler, Lioncourt has grown from a small regional player to one of the largest home builders and land owners in Central England. This impressive growth has seen rapid turnover and profit growth and has almost doubled the company’s workforce year on year.

In 2015 Lioncourt Homes became one of only 14 housebuilders in the UK to be holders of the prestigious 5 Star Quality Award which is based on direct customer feedback to independent industry body, the House Builders Federation five-star rating. The company’s continued success was recently further highlighted when they were awarded the prestigious accolade of Housebuilder of the Year 2016.

Over the next year, the company has exciting and ambitious plans to increase the number of new homes from 300 to 500 and will be setting up three new offices in the South East, Milton Keynes and Bristol.
