Lioncourt Homes named one of Europe’s fastest growing companies in FT1000

Worcestershire based Lioncourt Homes has been named as one of the fastest growing companies in Europe by the Financial Times. The FT1000 lists the 1,000 companies in Europe that have achieved the highest compound annual growth rate in revenue between 2013 and 2016. The Financial Times employ an army of analysts to sift through all companies in the 31 qualifying countries throughout Europe to arrive at the list of fastest growing businesses.

Colin Cole, Chief Executive of the Lioncourt Group commented: “We are delighted to feature in the FT 1000 for the second successive year. This is an outstanding achievement which reflects the strength and commitment of everyone in the Lioncourt team. It has been an outstanding year for The Lioncourt Group. We are currently expanding into the East Midlands and Oxfordshire with plans to open new offices in these new geographical areas at the appropriate time. Over the next 5 years turnover is planned to increase to circa £250 million with sales exceeding 1,000 homes.”

The multi award winning company has been ranked as the 413th fastest growing business in Europe among all industries in 31 countries. This follows the company’s recent success of being placed 41st in the Sunday Times Fast Track 100 and 12th in the Sunday Times Profit Track 100. Lioncourt has now been recognised as one of the top 100 fastest growing companies in the UK for three successive years.

Established in 2006, by Executive Directors Colin Cole and Neil Chandler, The Lioncourt Group has grown from a small regional developer 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.

This year the house builder received the maximum 5 Star Quality rating in the annual Home Builders Federation (HBF) customer satisfaction survey for the fourth consecutive year demonstrating their commitment to maintaining excellent standards of customer service
