A PENSNETT-based business has been named among the most inspirational companies in Britain.

The Elta Group, which has its headquarters on Pensnett Trading Estate, is on the London Stock Exchange Group’s list of the 1,000 most exciting and dynamic small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) in the UK.

The company provides fans and air movement equipment around the world and is the centre of an £85m group of businesses.

David Ball, vice chairman of the Elta Group, said: "I understand that the report took London Stock Exchange Group over six months to research and selection criteria required companies to have shown growing revenue and to have outperformed their competitors.

“So it is nice to have the success we have been enjoying confirmed and recognised in such a prestigious publication by an outside source.”
