Lochaber logistics company Ferguson Transport has been featured in London Stock Exchange Group’s flagship 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain 2018, which was launched this week.

The publication profiles the most dynamic and fastest growing SMEs across the UK, and the Lochaber-based road, sea and rail logistics provider, which employs 190 people in the area, has made it on to the list.

Managing director Alasdair Ferguson said: ‘It is very flattering to be recognised in this way. Our company was established in 1959 and will be 60 years young next year, which we are very proud of. We currently have 11 family members in the business, of which five are third generation.

‘The directors, along with senior management and all staff strive to deliver an affordable, sustainable service second to none for our customers, and continue to invest in infrastructure and people. It is great credit to all our directors, managers and employees, as well as our loyal customers, some of whom we have provided logistic solutions and services for many years.’

This is the fifth annual edition of the Stock Exchange’s report, which was launched on Tuesday.

MP for Ross, Skye and Lochaber Ian Blackford said: ‘It is excellent news that a local company has been recognised for its achievements by such a major institution as the Stock Exchange.

‘I have had many dealings with the company over the years and have always been impressed by the drive, enthusiasm and forward looking attitude with new ideas to improve their business and the local economy.

‘I congratulate them on this recognition, which is well deserved.’
