AerFin is once again placed on The Financial Times FT1000 fastest growing companies list as Europe’s fastest-growing Aerospace & Defence company, continuing a period of impressive growth for the business. The news follows the recently announced majority shareholder acquisition of AerFin by Danish private equity firm, CataCap and further underlines AerFin’s unique positioning in the aviation aftermarket.
The FT1000 ranks European companies that have achieved the highest Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) over the previous three fiscal years. The list is compiled by data provider Statista. AerFin has seen exponential financial growth, achieving a CAGR of 70.0% between 2015-2018, the period in which the rankings are calculated.
AerFin CEO, Bob James commented “It is an honour to be recognised again by the Financial Times for our continued growth. The acknowledgement further reaffirms the hard work and talent of everyone at AerFin who work tirelessly to ensure that we continually deliver aftermarket solutions to our customer base. With our new majority shareholder Catacap on board, we’re in a strong position to continue to grow and expand our service offering to the constantly changing requirements of the global marketplace.”
The acknowledgement adds to a long list of accolades for the business, which include awards such as the UK’s Board of Trade Award for its outstanding contribution to International Trade in 2018, the fastest growing privately owned business (Sunday Times FastTrack 100, 2017) as well as the UK’s business with fastest growing international sales (Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200, 2017).
