For the second year running, Widget has made it to the Sunday Times Fast Track list of Britain's 100 fastest growing private companies. This year the specialist distributor from Hertfordshire placed 36th

This small distributor’s success is down to its award-winning service ethos that has allowed it to embrace the explosion in the personal satellite navigation market that has occurred over the last few years. Being versatile and flexible enough to stay ahead of the charge lead by TomTom, one of their key vendors, has enabled Widget to experience growth of 95% over the last three years.

Mathew Jones, Marketing Director commented, “Small business adaptability has allowed Widget to stay ahead of a tidal wave of growth whilst still introducing innovative products like the PocketSurfer2 to the UK. We’re delighted to be in the Fast Track 100 for a second consecutive year and thank everyone at Widget to for pulling together to make it happen.”

The Sunday Times commented that "this Hertfordshire distributor hopes it has hit the jackpot for a second time by winning exclusive distribution rights in Britain to Pocket Surfer, a handheld devices that allows users to access the internet direct."
