Furniturebox the fastest growing online brand in the South West
The Wiltshire furniture business Futurebox, has been listed as the fastest-growing online brand in the South West.
Furniturebox based in the Beaumont Business Centre in Mere, has topped a league table compiled by Bristol-based tech firm BrightPearl. Researchers tracked growth rates for hundreds of online businesses across the UK who registered for inclusion in the ‘Lightning 50’ poll.
Brands were asked to submit their yearly growth numbers from 2019 to 2020, with each business ranked on their net growth percentage during that period.
Furniturebox which launched by Monty George and Dan Beckles in 2015 when the pair were aged 17, recorded a net growth of 267%.
The expanding company, which has grown its workforce to around 40 staff, is set to move to a new warehouse next year, as it looks to expand its product range and introduce new furniture designs.
The firm topped a South West top five which also featured Gloucestershire Fashion Label Holland Cooper, Devon horse riding equipment store Redpost Equestrian, Somerset board game manufacturer the Regency Chess Company and Wiltshire safety equipment supplier Henchman.
Mr George, managing director of Furniturebox reported online: “After a record couple of years at Furniturebox it’s fantastic to acknowledge our growth with Brightpearl’s Lightning 50. Our team has worked incredibly hard to achieve this growth and it’s been great to be able to expand our team as a result.”
