Widget Places 40th in the Real Business Hot 100 Wednesday 30 April 2008 PDF Print London UK, 30th April 2008 – The UK's fastest growing private companies are profiled in this year’s Real Business/LDC Hot 100 list. Together, they have pulled in sales of £4.3bn and boast profits of £280m. Widget UK Ltd is in 40th place, due to its sales growth of 95% per annum averaged over the past four years. This Hertfordshire-based personal electronics distributor puts its success down to a focus on service that has allowed it to keep ahead of steepening demand for its carefully managed product portfolio. Managing Director Mark Needham commented, “Being a company of only 20 staff, Widget has the flexibility to react to changes in the channel quickly. This has made us adaptable enough to continue to provide a high quality of service to both our vendors and customers when the volumes and channel model of our business have seen considerable changes.” Widget hopes to see even more growth this year with its latest offering, the PocketSurfer2, which promises mobile broadband at a fraction of the cost of 3G devices.
