Lone worker protection provider, Send For Help ranks 47th in fast track 100
Send For Help, the largest lone worker protection provider in world, has just been announced as one of Britain's fastest growing companies.
The Fast Track 100 list, which is published annually in The Sunday Times, ranks Britain's top 100 private companies with the fastest growing sales over their latest three years. Send For Help is ranked an impressive 47th in the league table for 2016.
Brothers James and Will Murray founded the award-winning Send For Help in 2010, when they spotted a gap in the market to provide lone worker protection using pioneering technology.
Operating through its two subsidiary brands Skyguard and Guardian24, the company uses key fob sized GPS personal safety alarms and apps to provide 24/7 personal protection to more than 100,000 lone workers and people who are at risk.
It primarily operates in the UK and Ireland, serving more than 100 NHS Trusts, 150 local authorities, 200 housing associations, and hundreds of commercial organisations, ranging from British Gas to Talk Talk, Dairy Crest to Weetabix.
The firm, which generated sales of £6.1m this year, is backed by family investment from James and Will's father technology entrepreneur Jan Murray, former PC World and Internet Technology Group founder.
"This is a significant milestone for Send For Help and marks the end of a successful year for the business, which saw our annual turnover almost double. We're exciting about building on this growth into 2017 and continuing to serve our clients," said CEO James Murray.
