Top 100 ranking for fast-growing Chippenham firm Solar Communications

September 14, 2012

Chippenham-based communications systems provider Solar Communications has been named as one of the UK’s fastest-growing hi-tech businesses.

The firm appears at number 50 in the Sunday Times Hiscox Tech Track 100 rankings for the first time.

The firm has attracted five of its largest 20 customers within the past year and has enjoyed average annual sales growth of 63% over the past three years, taking its sales to £8.5m.

Solar Communications, which was established in 1988, delivers a complete portfolio of telecoms products and services across the UK and internationally. It moved its head office to Chippenham from Bristol four years ago and last year opened a base in Fleet Street, London.

The table, published last Sunday and sponsored by Hiscox and Barclays, lists the fastest-growing technology, media and telecoms companies in the country.

Hiscox UK managing director Steve Langan said: “Just as London 2012 will inspire young athletes, so too should the stories behind these Tech Track companies inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs.

“Brainy, tenacious and above all hard working, these privately-owned businesses deserve every bit of recognition for their important contribution to our economy.”
