DCA have, once again, achieved a listing in the annual International Track 100 survey, significantly improving its position to 58 from a début ranking of 93 in 2010.
The Sunday Times International Track 100, published on 8th May, ranks Britain’s top private companies with the fastest-growing international sales over the last two years.
'We are hugely pleased to be listed in this survey again and to be one of only a handful of company’s still to rank in the Top 100 from the previous year. On top of this to have improved our position from 93rd last year to 58th this year is a massive achievement, reflective of the value that our overseas clients place on the design and development work that we do for them and the hard work put in by all the team here at DCA," comments Rob Woolston, DCA’s Managing Director and Head of the Medical and Scientific sector.
The 100 companies increased exports by an average of 91% over the last two years, to a total of £1.6bn. They employ more than 21,000 staff, having added nearly 6,600 jobs over the same period.
There are nine companies in the Midlands compared to eight last year, including DCA, who have made a significant contribution to the regional economy over the last two years.
