The Coventry and Warwickshire growth barometer, published in March at the Coventry Economic Forum event, identified the 50 fastest growing companies within the region. Businesses from nine different sectors appeared on the list, with manufacturing and engineering companies making up 14 of the top 50.

Whitefurze owner and Managing Director Philip Lanni said: “We are delighted to have been recognised as a top contributor to the region’s economic success. It is well known that the Coventry and Warwickshire region is built on manufacturing and we are proud of our ‘Made in Britain’ heritage and credentials. Over the past five years we have implemented an ongoing programme of investment and new product development creating new jobs across all areas of the business.”

Established in 1978, the privately owned company is one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of plastic household and outdoor products. Operating from its Coventry head office, the company occupies 160,000 square foot of warehouse space and houses 39 injection moulding machines at its production facility.

Mr Lanni added: “We will be celebrating our 40th anniversary next year and will continue to invest in technology, warehousing, production and people. Our aim is continuous growth and improvement and we will continue to bolster what is already a sustainable foundation for ongoing growth and prosperity.”
