St Austell Brewery has made it into the Sunday Times Grant Thornton Top Track 250, published today, for the first time.

Top Track 250The Cornish brewer and pub operator is ranked at number 175 after its acquisition of Bath Ales last year helped sales grow to a record £153m — an increase of 14%.

Chief executive, James Staughton, said: “This is obviously hugely important to us, confirming as it does the success of our mid- and long-term business strategies for growth.

“Our acquisition and subsequent investment in Bath Ales has afforded us new scope for wider business development. This not only benefits us immediately in terms of revenue growth potential, but is also great news for the wider local economy in terms of increased business and employment opportunities.

“Recognition of our efforts and those of other South West businesses included in this year’s national TopTrack 250 is a great advertisement for the diversity and quality of innovation and entrepreneurialism across our entire region.”

The 13th annual Sunday Times Grant Thornton Top Track 250 league table ranks Britain’s private mid-market growth companies with the biggest sales.
