Molson Group ranked no. 98 in the Sunday Times Top Track awards

October 20, 2020

For the third successive year, national plant and equipment dealer, Molson Group have been included in the Sunday Times Fast Track 250 awards.

Molson Group has thirteen subdivisions, consolidating their products and resources into dedicated teams to serve industries including, Construction and Demolition, Waste and Recycling as well as Quarrying. With a hand selected list of circa, thirty market leading manufacturer partners, Molson can offer customers a unique “Single Source Supply” option that allows customers to simplify their supply chain and maximise their buying power.

This customer focused approach is continued through to after sales support, with the group currently operating from 13 service locations strategically positioned throughout the UK, with over 75 Mobile Service Engineers. This infrastructure along with over £6m of spare parts in stock at any point in time, has helped Molson to retain a high percentage of repeat business and secure new business.  

The Sunday Times PwC Top Track 250 league table ranks Britain’s leading mid-market private companies with the biggest sales. It is compiled by Fast Track and published in The Sunday Times each September. To enter, a number of qualifying criteria must be met, including annual sales values to be between £100-750m and achieving circa 5% revenue growth.

Jason Powles, Chief Operating Officer at Molson Group said, “Being placed no. 248 in the Top Track 250 three years ago was a massive achievement for the Group, but building on this to be placed 178 last year and now to no. 98 just shows the incredible journey we are on.

“A key driver for this rate of growth has been the investment made by our investors at BGF and the Molson board. However, we have not just been looking for quick wins. We have also been investing for the long term with a new state of the art service centre in our Avonmouth site now complete and a customer machine telematics “Portal” soon to be launched. With this, we have laid the foundations for the next 10 years of growth”.

Bill Caplan, Non-Executive Chairman at Molson Group said, “This is a fantastic achievement and credit goes to the whole team at Molson for making this happen.

“Since first joining the business in 2018 I have been impressed by their agile approach that has allowed the business to react to changes in market conditions and more recently, adapt to the COVID-19 pandemic in a way that has not only protected the business, but also both staff and customers.

“Since the pandemic, we have continued to invest, where other businesses have stalled or even contracted. We believe that this will put us in a position to become a more valuable supplier to our customers in the coming months and years, as we bring a new system to the table that helps them manage their machinery more efficiently”.
