Diversity in the Top 200

Once the humble home of the textile industry, Leicester’s economy today is hugely diverse and impacts sectors such as quarrying, construction, manufacturing, food production, commercial services, sport and retail.

In the last year alone, Leicester’s growth has been monumental with the Top 200 of 2018’s business list. The Top 200 is compiled from turnover figures. The list, compiled by De Montfort University’s Beverly Vickerstaff, was topped by businesses with a combined turnover in excess of £4 billion.

This year’s overall winner featured on the prestigious list is from the car manufacturing industry is The Sytner Group with a turnover of £4.8 billion. Also noted should be the company’s 13 per cent increase in turnover.

Another regular on the list was Barratt Developments, the 2017 winners. Barratt Developments was runner up this year. And, retailers Next, the 2016 winners, was listed in third place.

We can’t ignore the impact we have made on the sporting world with Leicester City Football Club. The club has climbed a staggering 20 places on the list from 41 to 21 on the basis of an increase of more than 80 per cent as a result of becoming Premier League Champions in 2016, and the club’s first and successful UEFA Champions League campaign, reaching the quarter finals, which was the best result of any English club in 2017.
