Stockport based B2B International has reported record growth for 2017, with revenue rising 28% to £10.9m, and all divisions of the business expanding.
B2B International is a global b2b market research company covering Europe, North America and Asia working with 600 of the world’s largest 1,500 companies.
From his office in Bramhall, CEO Matthew Harrison reports:
We are delighted by our performance over the past year. We expanded rapidly in the UK, our German subsidiary in Dusseldorf continued its phenomenal growth, and the US division grew by a huge 41%. Our teams across all locations have done a fantastic job.”
“We have become a truly international business. North America is now our number 1 market, overtaking the UK for the first time. With continental Europe now representing almost a quarter of our business, and research in Asia continuing to be in demand, we have a real balance across our key markets.”
Chairman Nick Hague adds “In a market that is more competitive than ever, we have grown by focusing on the leading business-to-business corporates as well as rapidly expanding our team. Large businesses know that when they come to B2B International, they can expect world-class research and insights from the most experienced business-to-business research agency around.”
B2B has also seen a strong start to 2018. The company aims to continue its record of doubling in size every 5 years and has particularly aggressive expansion plans in North America and Continental Europe.
B2B is a family-run company, having been set up by father and son team Paul and Nick Hague in 1998 to provide world-class insights to leading b2b brands, empowering them to make decisions with confidence.
When we started as a company twenty years ago, b2b markets sat very much on the periphery of research circles. Those who attempt to research industrial and commercial markets do so through the lens of consumer research experience. We flipped the narrative and decided to specialise in b2b.”
