MEGA GROWTH 50, The 50 Fastest-Growing Businesses in Kent (No2 - 323.6% - London Chemicals & Resources). A ‘company to inspire Britain’ in uncertain times
One of the areas under scrutiny is catalyst turnaround, including the loading of the new catalyst, discharge and recycling of the spent catalyst.
It is often said the strength of the British chemical industry is under-appreciated – so to see London Chemicals & Resources (LCR) so high on this year’s list is encouraging. The firm, which moved to its head office in Westerham in 2009, is an international distributor and supplier of chemicals and metals for industry. And over recent years its growth has been significant, seeing revenues leap by more than 323% over the last three years – fuelled in part by a focus on recycling industrial materials. Such a rate would have put it at number one in last year’s Mega Growth 50 list, but for this year, it has to settle for a still impressive second place.
