A ‘feather in the cap’ for AR Demolition

Richard Dolman

Company named in London Stock Exchange’s ‘1,000 Companies to Inspire Britain’ 2018 report

WEST Midlands-based demolition firm AR Demolition have been named in a prestigious report celebrating the UK’s fastest-growing and most dynamic small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

The London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG) releases the ‘1000 Companies to Inspire Britain’ report annually and 2018 is the fifth year it has been published.


To qualify this year, companies had to have revenue of between £6 million and £250 million, be operating for at least three years, and be among the fastest growing in their industry sector.

Calculations were weighted to favour latest-year growth and any company with more than 20% deterioration in net assets over the past three years was excluded.

With growth at AR Demolition, based in Carlton, near Nuneaton, escalating turnover to £16 million in 2017, managing director Richard Dolman (pictured) said he was proud for his company to be included.

‘It’s a great feather in the cap for the company and a real fillip for all at AR Demolition to see us included in such a prestigious list,’ he said.

“We’ve worked hard over the past few years to set ourselves apart from our competition, creating something different from the typical demolition company and trying to build a business for the future. So it’s great to see that being officially marked by those outside the business.

‘Turnover this year is looking to be at record levels for us and we’ll know more on that soon. In the meantime, we also have some exciting initiatives in the pipeline, as well as some significant investments, which will further develop the foundation for our future.’

AR Demolition were congratulated for their appearance in the report by David Tredinnick, MP for Bosworth, who visited the company in 2016 and said he was delighted to see evidence of its progress since then.

‘It is fantastic news that AR Demolition, a local company and employer, has been included on the LSEG’s flagship Companies to Inspire Britain list,’ he said. ‘I congratulate them on this prestigious achievement; it is really beneficial for the region to have such inspirational, dynamic and growing companies in our area.’
