Chain Reaction Cycles win Best Management Team Award
Chain Reaction Cycles (CRC) is one of our favourite online retailers. This week, they picked up the coveted Profit Track Top 100 UK Company Best management Team Award at the Sunday Times PwC Profit Track Top 100 UK Companies awards, held at the Savoy Hotel in London. The awards further recognized the Northern Ireland-based company as a leader in UK business.
Chain Reaction Cycles beat well-known Â companies such as Britax Childcare, Charles Tyrwhitt Shirts, Dr Martens, Jack Wills and Phase Eight to theÂ prestigiousÂ award. Chain Reaction Cycles were commended for rapid commercial growth which has taken Chain Reaction Cycles from a family bike shop into the worldâ€™s largest online bike store with over 100,000 different product lines and annual sales of over ÂŁ100Million.Â It exports product from its base in Doagh Co. Antrim to over 100 countries; they also employs over 600 people.
Chain Reaction Cyclesâ€™ Finance Director Jarlath Quinn had this to say â€śthe company has experienced rapid growth through hard work, a strong family ethos and investment in its people.Â To be ranked among the Top 100 companies in the UK is a great achievement in itself, but to win this award is truly reflective of our team culture.Â Iâ€™d like to thank all our staff for their contribution in helping make this possible.â€ť
