Teesside-based chemicals manufacturer Fine Industries Limited has been announced 2014’s ‘highest climber’ in The Journal’s prestigious Top 200 North East Companies publication, which showcases the region’s best performing businesses.
Fine Industries manufactures high quality fine chemicals for use in the crop protection, pharmaceutical and specialty chemicals markets. Founded in 1977, the business employs 275 staff and has an international blue chip client base, exporting to countries including Switzerland, Germany, USA, Brazil and Ireland.
This recognition comes just 12 months after NorthEdge Capital, the private equity firm focused on backing businesses based in the North of England, invested in the company.
Brian Davidson, Non-Executive Chairman at Fine Industries, commented: “The Top 200 North East Companies publication is well respected in the region, and we’re especially proud to be recognised for achieving the highest growth this year. We also have a great investor in NorthEdge Capital.”
