Improveasy, the home improvement finance principal, has been named the 23rd fastest-growing privately-owned company in the UK.
That’s according to the annual Sunday Times Virgin Atlantic Fast Track 100 report, which ranks companies on their performance over the past three years.
Manchester-based Improveasy is said to have secured its place following three years of consistent year-on-year growth – Improveasy has grown by 138% in the last year alone.
Managing director, Austin Barcley, attributes the performance to the success of flexible finance packages, designed to help installers answer the changing buying habits of today’s consumer.
Austin commented: “I know I speak on behalf of the entire Improveasy team when I say we couldn’t be more proud to be listed in the 2019 Fast Track 100. This tremendous achievement is a real testament to the dedication of our team who work tirelessly to support our trade partners and get them ‘finance ready’.
“With millions of pounds of finance being written every month by our network, it proves that point-of-sale finance has quickly gone from an optional extra to an absolute must-have for every installer. All the signs point towards a busy 2020 on all fronts with new installers taking advantage of our service and more business being won and fulfilled through finance.
“Despite our successful year, we’re not taking our foot off the gas. We’re launching a number of new services and expanding our customer support throughout the year, all with the aim of helping our network accelerate sales and maximise every opportunity in 2020.”
