Drainage specialist maintains strong position in Top Track 250
Lanes Group plc has maintained its strong showing in a list of the UK’s top 250 mid-market private companies.
The drainage, utilities, and asset maintenance specialist ranks 128th in the Sunday Times Grant Thornton Top Track 250.
The league table, published in the Sunday Times on 7th October 2018, identifies the fastest-growing and most successful mid-market companies in the UK.
Last year, Lanes Group, the UK’s largest independent drainage specialist, ranked at 121. It entered the Sunday Times Grant Thornton Top Track 250 in 2016.
Lanes Group Managing Director Wayne Earnshaw said: “Our success as one of the UK’s leading mid-market companies is a result of the continued work we’re doing to develop and grow our business.
“In the last 12 months, we have won substantial new contracts, reflecting the trust our customers have in our services and our commitment to meet their needs and exceed their expectations.”
Lanes Group is the sole wastewater network services maintenance partner for Thames Water. In 2018, Thames Water awarded Lanes with substantial new contracts to provide additional specialist services, including water treatment plant cleaning, pumping station cleaning, wet well emptying, and tankering.
Lanes Group also won a major new contract to provide wet well cleaning for Northumbrian Water, and continued to deepen its relationships with other water utility providers, including Severn Trent Water and Anglian Water, winning new packages of work.
Key growth sectors for the business during 2018 have included highways, rail, energy, local government, construction, and housing.
Lanes Group is recognised for its innovation, investment in the most advanced specialist equipment, and strong focus on training and safety.
It won the Water Industry Achievement Safety and Wellbeing Award in 2018 and was a finalist in two other categories. Lanes holds a RoSPA Gold Medal after winning its 9th consecutive RoSPA Gold Award.
