Derek Slack Motors 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain.

Derek Slack Motors is thrilled to announce that it has been named by the London Stock Exchange in its 2015 report as one of the 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain.


Launched in 2013, the report was designed to celebrate those companies which serve as a driving force behind the UK economy and, as such, this edition identifies the UK’s fastest-growing and most dynamic small and medium sized businesses. Companies included in the list have demonstrated consistent revenue growth over a minimum of three years, significantly outperforming their industry peers. More detail on the methodology can be found in the report online at:


Tony Slack, Managing Director at Derek Slack Motors comments, “We’re delighted to be identified as one of the 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain for 2015. As a family-run business celebrating over 40 years trading, we’ve always made it our mission to provide the very best in customer service. As the oldest SKODA dealer in the North East, plus Centre of Excellence for ISUZU pickups, our dealership in Middlesbrough is already undergoing significant investment in 2015 expanding our showroom, parts and service departments.”


“We have a fantastic team behind us, which just gets better, added Tony”. “It was particularly heartening that of the 1000 UK companies recognised this year, 23 of them were from the North East, our dealership on Teesside included. We’d like to congratulate everyone else who made it into the report, especially all of the North East companies.”


Xavier Rolet, Chief Executive, London Stock Exchange Group adds: “This report is a significant part of London Stock Exchange’s broader campaign to support UK high growth companies in their journeys from Start-up to Stardom and to create an entrepreneurship revolution. I’m delighted that a strong alliance between UK Government, financial market participants, investors, entrepreneurs and companies has been created to support these inspiring businesses.”
