York Press:

"It's been just over a year since I joined Make It York as Chair, and during this time I’ve been hugely impressed with the creativity, innovation and resilience businesses in the city have displayed - particularly during what has been such an extremely challenging year, with all areas of life and business impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.

"York’s business landscape is richly diverse - with world-class businesses across a number of key industries.

"From a state-of-the-art rail-tech sector and thriving food and beverage manufacturers to a cutting-edge biotech sector and innovative cultural and creative businesses, York’s business community is truly unique, and something we should all be proud of.

"The York Top 100 is a hugely important publication which recognises local businesses for their contributions to the city’s economic prosperity and showcases their wonderful success stories.

"This year’s publication is a real testament to the hard work of the city’s businesses and a celebration of their achievements.

"Well done to the talented team at the Business School of York St John University for their work on this publication, which has brought together their extensive research and analysis of financial data.

"Special thanks also go to Dr Bob Gammie and Dr Rebecca Biggins for their dedication and commitment with developing this project and the hard work which has gone into it.

"We would also like to extend our thanks to The Press for publishing this report and their ongoing support to promote the achievements of York’s businesses throughout the year, in both the daily edition of the paper and its successful business supplement.

"Whilst 2020 has not been the year any of us could have imagined, the opportunities for York’s business landscape are huge and the outlook is very positive going forward.

"With transformational capital schemes like York Central and the Castle Gateway redevelopment in the plan, this will all help us to continue attracting new businesses to the city, drive inward investment and support the growth of existing industries."
