Tuatara: 32nd fastest growing company in the land

Last week, the annual prestigious Deloitte Fast 50 index of New Zealand’s quickest growing businesses was announced and Tuatara Brewing Company was stoked to not just make the list for the third straight year but to also jump two spots up to number 32.  This was based on our growth rate of 216.24%.  We were also delighted to be crowned the fastest growing manufacturer in the Wellington/Lower North Island region.  
Tuatara debuted in the Fast 50 at number 39 in 2009, moving up to 34 in 2010 and now to 32.  Only sixteen of the fifty companies listed in 2011 had been on the list before, and only four of those have appeared three or more times before.  We are proud to be in that small group.  
The Deloitte website provides profiles of all the winners who between them contributed nearly $600m to the New Zealand economy over the last three years and created 1,500 jobs.  Here is what they same about Tuatara: (http://www.fast50.co.nz/company/tuatara-brewing-company-ltd/)
“Coming in 32nd place and growing by 216.24% is Wellington's favourite brewery.  To say that Tuatara Brewery has taken off in the last few years is an understatement.  Heck, they’ve been propelled into orbit.  The local demand for good beer is insatiable, and with volumes running at about a million litres a year, Tuatara has become one of the leading lights in the craft industry.  It probably helps that they're based in the lower North Island where beer appreciation is not so much a cult as a full-blown religion.”
They also link to an exclusive clip where you can see Brewer Carl Vasta and Director Sean Murrie chatting about their experiences of Tuatara’s recent growth.  It is a good watch.
Director Sean Murrie said the brewery was grateful for the award which recognised the hard work of their team and a commitment to quality during a sustained period of rapid expansion.  “We have to concentrate on making great beer because it is what we do.  Over the last three years, we have added new beers to our range, increased production, gained new customers and started working with a plethora of new outlets and stockists.  We are very grateful to our customers, suppliers and stockists.  It’s been a great ride so far and I don’t see it slowing down anytime soon,” he said.
To qualify for consideration in the Fast 50, businesses must have had an operating revenue of at least $300,000 in Financial Year 2009 and been operating in New Zealand for at least 3 years.  In 2011, a growth rate of 144% was required to crack the Top 50.
Cheers from the team at Tuatara
