It's Here online. Practically nothing of interest, even in the downloads, unless I've missed a link somewhere. Looks like it's little more than a ranking of 100 UK SME's by growth over the last 2 years with a one paragraph of each company.

I appreciate that Alastair :thumbup:
Must be a different version of the paper for Ireland.
Interesting reading.

Well, very little information but yet essentials, GBP2.1 million sales in 2014 and 2 yr avg. sales growth of 40.24% pa, also being the only watch manufacturer in the league (while Bremont is no where to be seen in any of the leagues). Obviously doesn't directly translate into good watchmaking but still a remarkable achievement for the company as a whole.

He probably reads the forum.
