Zen Internet one of Top 100 fastest growing companies - The Sunday Times Virgin Atlantic Fast Track 100
15 December 2004 – For the first time, Rochdale-based Zen Internet, one of the UK’s leading Internet Service Providers (ISPs), has made it onto the Sunday Times Virgin Atlantic Fast Track 100 list at number 39. This position ranks it as the 12th fastest growing unquoted company in the North of England.

Fast Track is an independent research, publishing and events company that tracks Britain's top performing private companies and entrepreneurs. The Sunday Times Virgin Atlantic Fast Track 100 ranks the country’s 100 fastest growing unquoted companies by 2000-2003 sales growth. Zen Internet, as the only ISP on the list, had sales growth for that period of 95.88% per annum.

Richard Tang, Proprietor and Managing Director of Zen Internet, said: “I’m delighted about our inclusion in the Fast Track league table. It’s a great finish to our most successful year yet. Our strategy of staying independent and focusing all our energies on service quality has paid off, and I’m confident that this strategy will bring us continued success in the years to come.”

The listing rounds up a fantastic year of awards for Zen in 2004, which have recognised its consistent growth. The ISP was recently listed 51st in the Sunday Times Tech Track 100, which represents the 100 fastest growing technology companies in the UK. Last month Zen won the ‘Turnover under £10m’ category at the 11th annual Manchester Evening News Business of the Year awards. Zen was also listed 15th in the Inner City 100 Index, appearing in the list for the third year running. The Inner City 100 is an annual business index and research initiative that locates and celebrates the fastest growing inner city businesses in the country. Zen also won the regional final of Business of the Year as part of the British Chamber of Commerce (BCC) awards, and Richard Tang was named Business Person of the Year at the North Manchester Business Awards for Excellence and Achievement.
