Parcel2Go steams into Sunday Times list of top UK tech firms


Bolton-based online parcel delivery specialist Parcel2Go has been recognised as one of the fastest-growing privately-owned technology companies in the UK.

The company, which helps firms and private individuals to ship packages to addresses in the UK and across the world, entered the 11th annual Sunday Times Microsoft Tech Track 100 league table for the first time in position 89.

With annual sales growth of 39.5 per cent over the past three years and sales of £16.9m in the year to March 2011, the company has continued to go from strength to strength, thanks in no small part to the growth of e-commerce.

Richard Mercer, marketing director at Parcel2Go, said: "This is a fantastic achievement and a real boost for all the staff here at Parcel2Go. Everyone has worked extremely hard over recent years to provide businesses and individuals with a straightforward, first class service that allows them to organise a parcel delivery with the least amount of fuss.

The company was established by Fil Adams-Mercer in 1990 and now employs 46 people at its headquarters in Bolton. Through its website and a dedicated mobile site, Parcel2Go helps over two million people a year organise reliable courier services through the internet.

Richard Mercer added: “The increasing popularity of online shopping and sites such as eBay and Amazon have played a significant part in this success, as sellers look for reliable ways to ship their goods within the UK and abroad. We’ll continue to strive to improve the service we offer and find new and innovative ways to make domestic and international shipping cheaper and easier.”

The Sunday Times Microsoft Tech Track 100 is compiled in conjunction with Microsoft, Barclays Corporate and accountancy firm BDO.
