Griffin Internet, based at Pride Park in Derby, has been acknowledged as one of the fast-growing technology companies in the UK.
The company, which doubled its sales between 2003 and 2004 and doubled its staff during the last six months, has been ranked 64 in The Sunday Times Microsoft Tech Track 100, an annual listing that ranks the UK’s fastest growing unquoted technology companies based on increases in sales.
“The naming of Griffin Internet as one of the UK’s leading technology organisations is great news for the company and for the people who work here, as it is their drive and commitment to our customers that have made it possible,” said Griffin Managing Director John Dawson.
“It is also good news for the business community of Derby and the East Midlands because it independently confirms what we have been saying ourselves:– businesses in this region have a local source for world-class, benefits-driven communications to guide them through all the new technology currently appearing in the market place.
“There’s no doubt that the new BT network and the explosion in the use of mobile communication devices is radically changing how business works. Our whole ethos is to make sure that our customers – either directly or through our resellers – need not worry about IT; they can concentrate on what they do best and leave us to provide them with what we do best.”
Griffin provides Internet access to over 30,000 subscribers and is a major UK supplier of wholesale services for more than 200 ISPs (Internet service providers) and telecoms operators, including some of the world’s largest (and smallest) companies. Latest advances have seen the company offering new Broadband services and an innovative storage area network (SAN) solution to allay the business community’s concerns about today’s communications security. The company is currently trialling new voice-over-IP services.
