Founded in the 1930s, family run Allens Caravans, based at Wootton Hall, came in at number 26 in the Investec Hot 100 companies.

Looking at the UK’s 100 fastest growing mid-sized private companies in 14 different sectors, over a four year period, Allens Caravans stormed into position with 49 per cent growth with a £12,329,000 turnover.

The company, which employs around 100 staff, supplies caravans and runs eight holiday caravan parks across the country and saw the biggest growth out of the eight businesses in the Midlands to make the prestigious hot list.

Britain’s fastest growing company was Lancashire-based Alternergy, a solar energy distributor with a growth rate of 130 per cent.

Ed Cottrell of Investec said: “The Investec Hot 100 reveals the gradual emergence of a new generation of world-class UK businesses that with proprietary technology and an appetite for international markets, will be the global players of the future.”

Matthew Rock, founder-editor of Real Business, who have published the Hot 100 for the past 15 years, added: “The big lesson from this year’s research is that, even in a tough climate, Hot 100 companies stay relevant.

“As one market declines, they possess the high-energy leadership and finely tuned antennae to shift decisively into new growth areas.”
