Stratford-based software development firm Enable has achieved a record 16th year of growth with sales of £2.65m last year, up more than 25% compared to 2014.
During 2015, 12 new local jobs were created, taking the current headcount up to 42. The company builds software for some of the UK’s most recognised companies including BBC, BUPA Care Services, Mitsubishi Electric and Wolseley.
The firm, who recently purchased three freehold office units on The Courtyard, Timothy’s Bridge Road, was started by Denys C. Shortt OBE and Andrew Butt in 2000. From humble beginnings in a stable block with 2 employees, Enable has achieved sales growth every year and been profitable since inception.
Managing Director, Andrew Butt commented: “We are focused on achieving healthy sustainable growth. This year we expect to grow a further 25% and break through £3m in sales, creating jobs for a further ten”. Chairman Denys C. Shortt OBE said “Enable is re-investing its profits in developing innovative products and services. 2015 saw the launch of Enable iD, which is creating next generation personal data solutions and mobile apps, initially within the transport sector. 2016 is sure to be a truly exciting year for us.”
Mr Shortt was awarded OBE for Services to the West Midlands Economy in 2013 for his work as Chairman of the Coventry & Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP).
