Edinburgh Woollen Mill ranked as top performing private fashion business

Value retailer Edinburgh Woollen Mill has been named one of the top 10 highest performing mid-market private companies in the UK.

EWM comes tenth out of 250 businesses in this year’s Sunday Times Grant Thornton Top Track 250 league table - making it the highest ranked fashion or footwear company.

To qualify for inclusion in the league table, a company must be registered in the UK and have increased its sales or operating profits by at least 10% over its latest reported year. Sales of those in the top 250 are typically between £140m and £650m.

The number one spot this year went to Domestic & General, which provides warranties for household goods and grew its sales by 10% to £633m in the year to March 2014, with profits reaching £74m.

EWM made the top 10 after it grew its sales by 126% to £556m in 2013, following its takeover of Jane Norman in 2011 and Peacocks in 2012. Earlier this year it put Jane Norman’s stores into administration.

Dr Martens came 139th, while Fat Face was 152nd. The Dune Group was 214th and Barbour 222nd.
