High-performance keeps Vision in the International Track 200

Vision’s exceptional overseas performance has led to its top 50 ranking, making it the second appearance for our company in three years. Vision previously ranked on the list at number 26 in 2014.

MD, Laurie Thomas, commented: “Overseas growth has been a core focus for us over the last few years. We have expanded further into the US, Middle East, and Europe with a unique strategy which has seen the group successfully increase international sales by more than 60% in the last 12 months and by 54% the year previous.

“We are really excited to be featured in the top 50 once again, it is a testament to the hard work from all our employees, especially our overseas offices who have all worked tirelessly to make and sustain this growth.”

Laurie continued: “It’s been an exceptional year for Vision as we have restructured our entire operations and integrated three businesses into the group. Everything we have done over the last year has been completed with the aim to streamline our business to achieve even more international growth. We are certain this will more than optimise our entire global performance and position us at the forefront of the industry.”
