We are proud to announce that the JCB Group achieved 16th place at the 'MegaGrowth 50' awards, a prestigious business league table which recognises the 50 fastest-growing, privately-owned businesses in Kent ranked by growth in turnover and staff numbers.
This is the first time that the Group has been selected for the MegaGrowth list, staged by the Kent Messenger Group, so to be placed so highly is recognition of the successful vision of Managing Director Jonathan Bischoff who founded, and still leads, the company.
Jonathan said: “Being recognised as a MegaGrowth 50 company is a fantastic accolade. It’s a real achievement to be considered amongst other leading Kent businesses and a testament to the excellence of the staff within this business. Throughout my ownership, I’ve been very much centred on developing a regional dealership group which is customer-focused and financially robust. Within the past two years we’ve grown our portfolio of franchises in Sussex, now covering Brighton, Crawley, Eastbourne and Worthing which has increased our influence and reach in the automotive world."
“Since JCB Group’s inception, we’ve proven that there’s a healthy market for good old fashioned service in supporting motorists, where people are looked after. Customers are also concentrating their purchases around vehicles which are reliable and offer value-for-money. With this in mind, our strategy of expansion is very much focused around prestigious and forward thinking brands."
This formula is definitely working and was cemented by the news that the JCB Group moved to 111th place in the AM 200 UK dealer listings this year, up 28 places from 2014.
Jonathan added, “I’m especially proud to have been able to grow the business during a time when many others have succumbed to external economic pressures. Looking at the list of companies we sit amongst, I’m not only very proud to be part of a strong network of entrepreneurs, but also inspired as there is a clear and genuine sense of community among Kent businesses, hence the region’s success.”
