Modus Group recognised by Sunday Times as one of the UK’s fastest growing businesses Tuesday 29 April 2008 PDF Print Fit-out to facilities management firm Modus Group has been named as one of the UK’s fastest growing companies in the ninth annual Profit Track 100 league table published by The Sunday Times and sponsored by PricewaterhouseCoopers. Profit Track 100 ranks Britain's fastest-growing private companies by average profit growth over the last three years. In its last trading statement published in February for the full year of 2007, Modus announced a record year’s growth with turnover up 46 per cent to £90 million and net profit before tax up 90 per cent to around £4 million. Group CEO Toby Benzecry stated: “We’re delighted to be able to announce such good news to counter some of the needless negativity around at the moment. It’s also great to be recognised alongside such household names as Aston Martin, Virgin Money and JCB, who all made the list with us. The MBO carried out in July 2007 re-energised an already growing business and the market should expect to see significant further growth from Modus Group in the coming 24 months as our business plan is developed.” ENDS For further information on Modus Group, please contact Front Marketing Communications on 0870 850 9119 or email@example.com About Modus • Modus Group is an award winning multi-disciplinary design and build, interior design and facilities management specialist.
