For the second consecutive year Bee Health has been named in the Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200. The UK’s leading vitamin and supplement manufacturer is ranked at No 108 and is one of only twenty north-east companies listed. The annual league table ranks Britain’s mid-market private companies with the fastest-growing international sales.
Yorkshire-based Bee Health’s overseas sales grew by an average of 37% per annum over the two years to 2019, with the company now selling to 40 countries.
“Sustaining growth year after year is a testament to the hard work and commitment of everyone at Bee Health,” said Lewis Ryan, Managing Director of Bee Health.
“We are proud to be listed in the International Track 200 and are very excited about the future direction of the business.”
Jan Fletcher OBE, Chairman of Bee Health, commented: “Whilst our roots are in Yorkshire we have always had an international outlook which, once again, is recognised by this listing.
“The extraordinary growth we have seen over the past few years, in both the U.K. and overseas, has firmly established Bee Health as the pre-eminent force in the industry and this achievement recognises the dedication and hard work of our entire team.’
Developers Opus North and Rougemont have submitted outline planning permission for Dalton 49 Thirsk (dalton49thirsk.co.uk), a new 43-acre logistics park, to Hambleton District Council. Formerly part of RAF Dalton, the site is capable of delivering around 650,000 sq. ft. of much needed employment space.
Situated next to the existing Dalton Airfield Industrial, Estate the proposed plans will create a regionally significant employment site with hundreds of jobs. The scheme will provide modern buildings and facilities to meet the needs of occupier businesses, employees and investors by provision of a range of unit sizes and types.
Following the recent completion of the new bridge at Dalton, the site offers excellent access to the A19 and A1. Ryan Unsworth, Development Director at Ilkley-based Opus North, one of the region’s most active developers, commented:
“Yorkshire will represent around 30 per cent of all the UK logistics take-up this year, as the region remains so attractive to occupiers. Dalton 49 Thirsk is one of the most connected locations in North Yorkshire and being a cost-effective alternative for occupiers, in comparison to other Yorkshire industrial hubs, we have already had interest from businesses looking for space to improve supply chains or expand into new premises.”
A carefully considered site layout will ensure the development is sympathetic to nearby properties and its wider landscape by incorporating new tree planting, habitats and sustainable drainage features. Dalton 49 Thirsk will be a sustainable, efficient and contemporary addition to the existing Dalton Airfield Industrial Estate.
James Craven, Managing Director of specialist investment manager, Rougemont said: “We look forward to working closely with Hambleton District Council to achieve an outline planning application for around 650,000 sq. ft. of industrial and distribution accommodation to service the shortage of availability between Leeds and the North East.”
“The location is already home to successful engineering, manufacturing and distribution companies and with the improved transport links it has the potential to provide a significant additional employment boost and facilities to the area,” he continued
