The Ward Hadaway Yorkshire Fastest 50 Awards were launched in 2011, with The Yorkshire Post, 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 Yorkshire economy and the ones projecting a story of sustained growth in tough times through innovation, efficiency and skills.

Our most recent winners were Leeds-based independent development and construction company, Torsion Group, who were crowned the fastest growing large and overall business.

Sausage and burger producers, HECK!, were named fastest growing medium business with bespoke property builder, Woodhouse (Lund) Ltd taking home the trophy for fastest growing small business.

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