The third edition of the FT 1000 report recognising Europe’s fastest-growing companies has been published today, with lone worker protection specialists, Send for Help Group being featured for the second consecutive year.
The list comprises the top 1000 businesses across Europe, spanning 32 countries. Send For Help Group have been ranked 638th — alongside 131 companies from the United Kingdom — earning their place in the prestigious table, which is arguably Europe’s most authoritative report on sustainable growth, thanks to an impressive 279% growth in revenue between 2014 and 2017.
The Send for Help Group was founded in 2010 and operates through its three subsidiary brands — Skyguard, Peoplesafe and Guardian24 — making it the largest lone worker protection provider in the world.
“This latest achievement is yet another great accolade for the company,” said James Murray, Chief Executive of Send For Help. “We’re incredibly proud to have secured our place for a second year running.”
“Our aim is to continue driving our industry forward and innovate with our cutting edge, affordable and easy to use technology, protecting those at risk. ” he added.
The group protects more than 150,000 users through their personal safety devices and smartphone apps, which are linked to a purpose-built, fully accredited ‘Alarm Receiving Centre’ (ARC), at the company’s headquarters in Epsom, Surrey. The ARC is staffed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year — ensuring lone workers can call for assistance at any time with direct links to police control rooms, so if necessary they can bypass the 999 system to receive a faster emergency response if clients are threatened, attacked or are in danger.
