Modular commercial kitchen supplier PKL is celebrating after it was placed 20th in The Sunday Times Lloyds SME Export Track 100 list this month.
The list outlines the 100 UK small and medium sized enterprises with the fastest growing international sales.
The Cheltenham-based firm provides temporary and modular kitchen infrastructure, and has seen a number of successful projects over the last year, including providing the temporary kitchens for the Rio Olympics.
PKL’s international income shot up in 2016 thanks to large high-profile projects such as creating the world’s biggest temporary kitchen at the Olympics and the Pan American Games in Toronto.
In the last financial year PKL’s international turnover doubled to £6.8m.
Since launching in 1988, PKL has built a reputation for excellence and dependability which has helped it grow its business to its current turnover of nearly £18m.
The company’s strategy for future growth will focus on military and humanitarian projects, said PKL’s managing director, Lee Vines: “We’re delighted to be featured on this list alongside some illustrious company. It’s proof that our strategy for growth, which has a very important international aspect, is working well.
“We’ve taken on some very high-profile and complex contracts this year. They have allowed us to demonstrate the skills in designing, equipping and project managing major projects that our brilliant team have. I’m very proud to lead this organisation of dedicated individuals who give everything each day to make sure we help our clients succeed.
“We have a development plan in place which we believe will allow us to continue this growth, working with military and humanitarian clients.”
