The Ward Hadaway Greater Manchester Fastest 50 Awards were launched in 2014 to celebrate the region's fastest-growing, privately-owned companies.

The Awards are our way to celebrate the businesses that keep the region thriving. They are the heroes of the Greater Manchester economy and the ones projecting a story of sustained growth in tough times through innovation, efficiency and skills.

Our most recent winners were Warrington-based logistics and freight forwarding company, Candour Logistics, who were crowned the fastest growing large and overall business.

Software developers, Godel Technologies were named fastest growing medium business with industrial adhesive and speciality chemical supplier, Antala Ltd taking home the trophy for fastest growing small business.

The next Ward Hadaway Greater Manchester Fastest 50 Awards will take place in May 2020. Keep checking back for updates and follow #Fastest50 on Twitter and LinkedIn for all the latest news.

  • "I’m stunned and completely over the moon to have won this award. This is a big accolade. The company is only four years old and it’s been a great journey with many sacrifices along the way, but things like this make it worthwhile."

    John Keary, Managing Director of Candour Logistics
  • “It’s been absolutely amazing. It’s a great thing for us to be recognised as one of the fastest-growing businesses and just knowing how much we have contributed to the overall growth of the region is very impressive and it’s great to be part of it."

    Anastassia Davidzenka, VP Professional Services at Godel Technologies
  • “This win was very unexpected I have to say. It’s a very good company that we work for and I’ve worked for some unique companies in the past, but this one is a family business, that is family-run with family values which is a big difference for me and I think it’s well worth the award. Our people are absolutely over the moon – they are so happy with this award win."

    Darren Farthing, Operations Manager at Antala Ltd
