real business hot 100Kingdom is pleased to announce that is has been included in Real Business’s Hot 100 list of the UK’s fastest growing private companies in 2015.

Real business is the most-read SME website dedicated to high-growth businesses and entrepreneurs. They describe themselves as the “champion of UK enterprise”, and provide daily news, unique insight and invaluable guides, making them an essential resource for thriving businesses.

The Real Business Hot 100 list was first published in 1997 to showcase the UK’s fastest-growing private companies, and is has been described as “the most rigorous and definitive analysis of the UK’s mid-market economy”.

Real Business’s Hot 100 profile of Kingdom says:

‘Having recently acquired Basingstoke-based MJF Security and Sunwin Managed Security from Cardtronics, Kingdom has established itself in The Hot 100 at number 95.

‘These acquisitions have also seen it move up Infologue’s rankings of the top thirty security companies in the UK. Sunwin is a provider of manned guarding services with approximately 640 security professionals, while MJF is a multi-disciplined business with an established client base spanning London and the home counties.

‘Managing Director, Terry Barton, said the acquisitions should open up further opportunities for the company, pointing to Sunwin’s “fantastic customer base, operational structure and service delivery model”.

‘The acquisitions added £24.5m to its security services annual turnover in the first two months of 2015. This follows a pattern of sensible acquisition growth for the company, which has contributed to its position in The Hot 100, along with business retention and organic growth.’
