Fast Track 100

Founder Tony Banks set out to supply the Scottish market when he consolidated his four care homes into Balhousie Care Group in 2005. Today it has 16 care homes across Scotland serving 550 residents from its Dundee headquarters. It offers long-term residential and nursing care and respite for full-time carers, and also has units for dementia and special-needs residents. The group has grown rapidly through acquisition, with three new homes bought in 2007, and now plans to expand outside Scotland. Sales have grown 89% a year from £1.3m in 2005 to £8.6m in 2008.
