Fast Track 100

European Union enlargement has provided Midlands-based Encore with a steady stream of immigrants looking for work. About 50% of the 800 workers on Encore’s books come from Poland and Africa and it hopes to benefit further by opening an office in Poland. The company
was founded by managing director Greg Latham and two colleagues in 2002 to provide clients such as Boden and DHL with blue-collar staff on temporary contracts. Sales at the company have grown 117% a year from an annualised £979,000 in 2002 to an annualised £10m in 2005.
