Catexel recognised as one of fastest growing technology companies

Oxidation catalysis specialist, Catexel, is the only clean technology company headquartered in the UK to be included in Deloitte’s celebrated Technology Fast 500 EMEA scheme.

The IP-rich, asset-light green chemicals business has ranked alongside organisations involved in all areas of technology advancement to be named one of 2016’s fastest growing technology companies in Europe, The Middle East and Africa (EMEA). It was one of just 20 ‘clean technology’ companies to compete against other rapidly growing operations from across the hi-tech, life sciences, media and telecommunications spaces, in securing Fast 500 status.

Says Catexel’s Chief Operating Officer (COO), Glenn Fletcher: “To feature alongside those technology companies that have traditionally been associated with faster growth – like those operating in software, for example – is especially pleasing and shows how ambitious chemical companies with a proven runway of potential and, importantly, platforms that support a more sustainable way forward, can compete on the world stage and in all areas of technology development.

“Value creation comes from having the right people and processes to bridge the technical and commercial gap that – left open – prevents many inventions in succeeding to market. It’s this meeting of minds that makes pioneering technologies not just possible but operationally valid and economically rewarding. And that’s the difference between having an idea and actually implementing game-changing innovation.”

"The accolade clearly demonstrates how we have continued to successfully grow the business through investment in R&D and our people to deliver breakthrough products. "

Through chemistry using manganese and iron catalysts, Catexel has already made positive change possible in a number industries and has an innovation pipeline with the promise of potential solutions for many more markets. From making textile mills more energy efficient, to helping industrial cleaning operations save water, coatings companies to find more benign formulations, and supporting all of its customers in achieving tangibly more sustainable operations, Catexel’s success is underpinned by a team of lateral thinkers that enable its science to be leveraged for such a broad range of seemingly unrelated markets and applications.

“Innovation is more than technological advancement; it’s also a state of mind,” said Paul Sallomi, vice chairman, Deloitte LLP and global technology, media and telecommunications industry leader. “The winners of the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 program in EMEA recognise that this new type of thinking is essential for business success.”

Catexel was also shortlisted for the Deloitte Fast 50 2016 programme.
