Pendragon PLC is celebrating after taking second place again this year in the Nottingham Post's Top 200 Companies in Nottinghamshire. Only fellow retailer, Boots UK, preceded Annesley-based Pendragon, which incorporates brands including Stratstone and Evans Halshaw.
With research for the list conducted by staff at the Industrial Economics and Finance Division of the Nottingham University Business School, the results were announced today. The list incorporates the top 200 businesses by annual turnover and includes companies with registered offices in Nottinghamshire.
Retailers dominated the top spots, with Sports Direct International and Wilkos Retail taking the third and fourth positions after Boots UK and Pendragon PLC.
Trevor Finn, Chief Executive of Pendragon PLC said:
"It is fantastic to be recognised once again as a top company based in Nottinghamshire and indeed to see the diversity of the listings, showing the vibrant business community in Nottinghamshire. Although we are a national business with a significant footprint that spans the country, the East Midlands is the epicentre, with our head office and Training Academy here supporting our 9,000-strong team offering choice, value, service and convenience to customers across the UK."
