11 ni companies make deloitte fast 50 list

At the presentation of the Rising Star award at the Deloitte Fast 50 are Sonia Armstrong, Ulster Business with Steven Cassin and Stephen Leathem, both from Engage

 Eleven companies from Northern Ireland have secured rankings in Ireland’s best-known technology growth index – the Deloitte Fast 50.

 The awards, which are in their seventeenth year in Ireland, demonstrate the strength of the indigenous technology sector on the island of Ireland. Cumulatively, the 2016 Fast 50 winners generated approximately £1.4bn in total annual revenues in 2015. The average revenue of companies featured on the list was approximately £28m, while the average growth rate of the companies over the last four years was 270 per cent.

 Dublin-based eShopWorld secured the top spot for the second year in a row after it achieved a growth rate of 2596 per cent over the last four years. eShopWorld is a leader in global eCommerce and logistics management solutions that give online retailers control over the end-to-end customer journey.

 Ozaroo Retail, one of the UK and Ireland's fastest-growing online retailers, was the highest ranking Northern Ireland business at number four on the Fast 50. The company ships more than 1,000 parcels a day to customers around the world.

 Northern Ireland digital business Engage was also named this year’s Rising Star award winner. This category recognises younger companies with the fastest growth in turnover over the past three years. Engage delivers content management, eCommerce and digital marketing solutions from offices in Belfast, Dublin and London and has recently completed work for Irish Ferries, Permanent TSB, Power NI and Chartered Accountants Ireland.

 All four provinces are featured on this year’s ranking: 33 of the winners are Leinster-based, 11 are based in Ulster, six are from Munster and one from Connacht.

 Commenting on the companies on this year’s Deloitte Technology Fast 50 list, Peter Allen, Partner at Deloitte said: “We are delighted to be recognising these exceptional and innovative Irish companies. Their contribution to the technology sector is critical to the success of the industry across Ireland and it is clear from the turnover derived from exports that they are having considerable success in global markets also. This ambition is hugely encouraging to see and will be increasingly important in a post-Brexit marketplace, where pressure on margins may necessitate diversification into other markets.

 “For this reason, and due to the wealth of opportunity that presents itself, we expect developed and emerging markets to be increasingly important for local technology companies. The success that has been achieved to date by the indigenous technology sector leaves them well placed to capitalise on this momentum.”
