Hopkins Homes set to inspire Britain
Suffolk-based Hopkins Homes has been named in the fourth edition of the London Stock Exchange Group’s (LSEG) 1000 Companies to Inspire Britain report. The report is a celebration of the UK’s most dynamic small and medium sized businesses.
Beginning with a single renovation project in 1985, Hopkins Homes is now the largest independent housebuilder in East Anglia building over 1000 new homes in the last financial year. The company employs over 120 people at the head office in Woodbridge, Suffolk, along with sales and construction staff across their developments throughout the region. It is also a large supplier of affordable homes in the region and has made payments of over £19 million towards community infrastructure as well as establishing their Building Communities Fund which supports regional charities and good causes.
Lee Barnard, Managing Director of Hopkins Homes, said: “We are delighted to have been included in this annual report from LSEG. At the heart of all we do is our fundamental commitment to building high quality homes that both complement the local aesthetic and meet the practical needs of our buyers and their communities. Our success depends on this and our passion for achieving this aim is matched by the enthusiasm of our buyers.”
Xavier Rolet, Chair Executive, London Stock Exchange Group said: “Four years on, LSEG’s ‘1000 Companies to Inspire Britain’ report continues to highlight the dynamic, entrepreneurial and ambitious businesses across the country that are boosting UK productivity, driving economic growth and creating jobs. The strength and diversity of these companies is readily apparent with a broad mix of UK regions and sectors represented. These companies are the very heart of an ‘anti-fragile’ economy: more robust; more flexible and less prone to boom and bust. We must ensure we continue doing all we can to support high growth potential businesses like these.”
