Aspen Pumps, HRS Heat Exchangers and Lawton Tube have been named in the UK’s top 200 fastest-growing firms for international sales.

They feature in the 10th annual Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200 league table, which ranks independent UK companies according to international sales growth over the last two years.
Condensate pump and ancillary product manufacturer Aspen is ranked at 159 in the list after increasing sales by 41.45%, followed by HRS at 161 (41.34%) and Coventry-based copper tube manufacturer Lawton Tube at 166 (39.15%).

In order to meet the league table criteria, companies must be registered in the UK and be independent, unquoted and ultimate holding companies. They are ranked according to the compound annual growth in their international sales over the latest two financial years. Total sales must be at least £25m and international sales at least £1m in the latest financial year.

The firms will receive their their official league table plaque at the International Fast Track awards dinner in London on 1 May.
