A CENTRE Park-based company has been named by the Sunday Times as having some of the highest sales figures of any in the country.

Optionis, a professional services provider headquartered on Centre Park Square, has featured on the 15th annual Sunday Times Grant Thornton Top Track 250.

The league table ranks the UK’s private mid-market growth companies with the biggest sales.

And Optionis was a new entry on the list in 55th, with sales of £321million in its latest accounts up to October 2018.

Employing 7,388 staff nationwide, these sales resulted in profits of £18million for the company’s shareholders.

A total of 29 companies on the list were based in the north west, compared to 25 in 2018.

Optionis had the second highest sales of these 29 companies, behind only Chester-based dairy product producer Meadow Foods.

Other businesses from around the UK featured on the Top Track 250 include PureGym, David Lloyd, Dr Martens and Fat Face.

Karen Campbell-Williams, partner at Grant Thornton UK LLP, said: “Whilst the headwinds of political and economic uncertainty have been a consistent feature of the UK economy over the past year, mid-market firms have continued to prove their resilience.

“They’ve demonstrated their adaptability to uncertain times and found opportunities for growth, both at home and abroad.”
