Selwood has been recognised as one of the UK’s fastest-growing international sales stars in the 11th annual Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200 league tables.
The pumping solutions, pump sales and plant hire company, headquartered in Chandlers Ford, Hampshire, is one of 10 new entrants to the league table, which lists the British mid-market private companies with the fastest-growing international sales.
Strategic PR specialists, Polymedia, supports Selwood’s domestic and international sales operations through a combination of branding, public relations, website, media and social media services.
Selwood appears at number 90 in the 200-strong list of companies, with estimated international sales of £8.2m – a 51% growth over two years. It is the first time the company has appeared in the list.
In recent years Selwood has grown its international operation, bringing in new distributors and moving into new territories including a recent push into the Middle East and Asia-Pacific regions. Selwood is part of the Workdry International Group, which acquired water treatment specialist Siltbuster and Siltbuster Process Solutions in 2018.
Richard Brown, Workdry CEO, said: “This is a fantastic achievement which recognises the hard work of our international sales teams and distributors as well as the exceptional quality of the products we manufacture at Chandler’s Ford. We’re delighted to be recognised in this way as we continue to grow Selwood and Siltbuster as leaders in complete water handling and treatment solutions on a regional, national and international scale.”
Amanda Murphy, Head of Commercial Banking, HSBC UK, said: “The Sunday Times International Track 200 shows the strength, ambition and resilience of companies across the UK and we are delighted to be sponsoring again this year.
“At HSBC UK, we take great pride in recognising the contribution these businesses are making to driving growth across the UK. The new entrants in Southeast are making a significant contribution to employment, driving prosperity and growth and are the sort of businesses we are pleased to support every day.”
