Reseller Central Telecom has been recognised for their outstanding growth, performance and contribution to employment creation by being listed in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Awards.
For the fourth consecutive year, Central, whose headquarters is on Wetmore Road in Burton-on-Trent, has been named as a Fast 50 Company for the Midlands and the North.
Historically, two separate programmes have been run for the Midlands and the North; however, this year they have been amalgamated to form the Midlands and North region, which makes Central’s achievement all the more noteworthy.
The Technology Fast 50 Awards recognise the fifty fastest-growing technology companies across the two regions, based on percentage revenue growth over five years (2000 – 2004). Participants can be public or private and working within various facets of technology, including communications, computers and peripherals, internet, semi-conductors and software.
Companies included in the Fast 50 have demonstrated innovative strategies, sound management practices and marketplace vision.
Marketing Director Julie White collected the award at a special Awards Ceremony, hosted by TV personality Paul Ross at Mere Golf and Country Club in Stoke-on-Trent.
“Achieving sustained revenue growth of over five years is a tremendous accomplishment during a difficult period for the technology sector,” said Chris Robertson, Technology, Media & Telecommunications Partner for the Midlands and North region.
“We congratulate Central on becoming one of the 50 fastest growing technology companies in the Midlands and North region; Central’s exceptional growth puts it in select company,” added Chris.
“We are delighted to listed in the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Awards, which are widely respected both within the industry and in the wider business community,” explained Julie. “To be listed for four consecutive years is a tremendous achievement and a reflection of our continued growth and success within what is a fiercely competitive industry.”

It implements leading edge communications solutions across a diversity of market sectors and has more than 6,000 managed accounts and more than 500,000 end users throughout the UK, ranging from SME’s to blue chip and public sector organisations.
