Jolly Good Vehicle Rentals is celebrating after being named one of Wales’ fastest growing companies for the fourth consecutive year.
The firm collected an award for ‘Sustainable Growth’ at the prestigious Fast Growth 50 awards’ ceremony and was also named as one of the top 50 fastest growing companies in Wales.
Employee numbers have increased at Jolly Good and the company has created 25 new jobs within the group over the past year.
Jolly Good was the only rental company on the list and the award was collected by Mark Hughes, managing director at Jolly Good Vehicle rentals, at the FastGrowth50 ceremony held at the Mercure Hotel in Cardiff on November 6.
Hughes said: ‘We are delighted to be named one of Wales’ fastest growing companies for yet another year. The growth of the company is down to two assets – our product and our people.
‘Every hire car is less than six months old and every van is less than 12 months old, which means every customer is guaranteed a great driving experience in terms of comfort, style and fuel economy.
‘Our staff turnover is extremely low and they all have a can-do, positive attitude. They take pride in the important contributions they play in making the experience of hiring a vehicle an extremely positive one for each and every fleet customer.’
Jolly Good’s head office is based in Wrexham, Wales with other branches at Colwyn Bay, Newtown, Deeside, Shrewsbury, Telford, Warwick and Ely.
There are plans to open a further three branches a year over the next five years with each branch growing to a fleet size of more than 100 vehicles within 18 months. The current fleet size of the company is 1500.
Professor Dylan Jones-Evans, founder of the FG50, said: ‘I am delighted that the Jolly Group has qualified for the Fast Growth 50 for the fourth year in succession, demonstrating yet again the talent, perseverance and hard work of everyone within the business.
‘Since 1999, the Wales Fast Growth 50 has become the list to which Welsh entrepreneurial firms aspire to. Collectively, the 528 firms that have appeared on the list have generated £15 billion in sales and, more importantly, 30,000 jobs, demonstrating the importance of these businesses to the Welsh economy.’
