“Making the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 is a testament to a company’s commitment to technology,” said Nigel Thomas, Deloitte Technology partner for the South West UK. “With its 963% growth rate over five years, TVS has proven that its leadership has the vision and determination to grow in competitive conditions.”
”Securing a position in the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 is an impressive feat, especially in the highly competitive and rapidly changing environment of the technology industry,” said David Halstead, Deloitte UK and partner in charge of the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 EMEA programme. “We congratulate TVS on being among the most dynamic and successful technology companies in the region.”
Mike Bartley, CEO and Founder of TVS, commented, “We are delighted to achieve this ranking in the Deloitte UK Fast 50 and EMEA Fast500 awards 2014. The award underpins the company’s ongoing commitment to technical expertise, resourcing and staffing, and of course that adds up to orders received and increased revenue growth. In recent years we have developed and expanded our ‘asure’ products that have enjoyed a fantastic, industry-wide reception, and we have won several excellent overseas contracts.”
Bartley continues, “The worldwide semiconductor and embedded systems industries are constantly morphing, reflecting the needs of fast changing market places and end users, and this creates new test and verification challenges. Our strategy is to meet those challenges by a process of continuous development and innovation, and as a result we continue down the path of controlled expansion on a worldwide basis. My congratulations and thanks go out to the whole team at TVS.”
