HiB named in scaleup index for second year running

We’ve been named in the coveted ScaleUp Index 2018, our second appearance on the list in many years. Our managing director, Robert Ginsberg, sat down to answer a few questions about the ScaleUp Index, and what being included in the report means to HiB. What is the Scaleup Index? Based on analysis of the UK’s fastest growing independent companies, the annual ScaleUp report shines a light on businesses which have seen exceptional development over the preceding year. What sort of growth has HiB achieved in 2018? We’ve had another great year, maintaining double digit growth for the business and building our team to nearly 100. We’ve also further developed our transport fleet, in order to offer even greater levels of service to our customers.  How have you managed to sustain your rapid rate of growth? HiB’s success is rooted in our continuous innovation. We are constantly looking for what comes next, rather than resting on our laurels. Our mission has always been to develop products which create a wow-factor in the bathroom, and by pioneering new ways of doing this, we are able to maintain growth.  What plans do you have for future growth? We’ve got many new ideas planned for 2019 (which are under wraps for now!), including the development of our growing export market. What does being named in the Index mean to you? It is a fantastic achievement to appear on the ScaleUp Index for the second year in a row, and is a testament to the continued hard work of the entire HiB team. 2018 has been another outstanding year for us, and we look forward to the challenges and successes yet to come in 2019.   For further information, please visit www.hib.co.uk.
