News: Rotherham's outstanding companies


Plimsoll Publishing Ltd, the world's leading provider of market reports and company analysis, has awarded the accolade of "Outstanding Company" to a number of businesses in Rotherham.

Only a handful are awarded following the latest analysis of the published annual accounts relevant to the firms' specific area of business. The award indicates they have improved their overall financial health based on Plimsoll's assessment of their overall performance. At the same time they have achieved solid sales growth.

Leading the way is expanding manufacturing firm, CMD Ltd who were recognised this month. Based at Eastwood, the innovative company has a product range offering underfloor power systems, lighting and power busbars, lighting control systems, together with office power, cable management and ergonomic solutions.

Steve Cole, managing director at CMD Ltd, said: "Building and maintaining an outstanding financial growth takes a lot of hard work across the entire company and it's fantastic to be recognised for this. Plimsoll Publishing is a well-respected, independent body so it's exciting that they've acknowledged CMD's achievements with this award."

Other recognised Rotherham firms include, Roberts Radio, the UK brand leader in the portable radio market that is sold around the world from Japan to USA. The company is based at Swinton alongside Morphy Richards, both of which are owned by the Irish Glen Dimplex Group.
ASD Lighting, the successful family-run firm that specialises in the manufacture of lighting for domestic and commercial installations, is also on the list. The latest financial results for the Barbot Hall company showed that pre-tax profits were £3.7m in the year ending 31 December 2012. Turnover during the year increased to £25.8m from £23.3m in 2011.

Huthwaite International, the world's leading company in behaviour change for salespeople and negotiators, is also recognised by Plimsoll. The Wentworth company is a market leading behaviour change consultancy and specialises in consulting and training on all aspects of sales. It works with major blue chip companies across the world including Rezidor, Dell, Motorola, UPS and Zurich Insurance.

Huthwaite International's revenue from non-UK business grew from £3.8m in 2010/11 to £5.7m in 2012/13 and exports are now 76.6% of Huthwaite's turnover.

Also on the list is Exol Lubricants, the largest independent lubricants company in the UK. Based in the West Midlands, its large blending plant at Northfield has recently expanded. Exol has successfully grown its export business throughout Africa, Asia, Europe and the Middle East, appointing strategic partners in various countries.

Acorn Industrial Services Ltd has also been recognised in the year that it completed a £1.25m investment in new premises in Hellaby. The firm is one of the largest power transmission distributors in the country and supplies bearings, power transmissions and linear systems to a global customer base.

With new premises twice the size of the previous sites combined, and more than capable of housing the company's £4m worth of stock alongside all head office functions, the firm has recently significantly extended its range of power transmission products with the launch of a brand new coupling division.
