The Top Track 250 league table is sponsored by Grant Thornton and Barclays and compiled by research company Fast Track.
David Maxwell, partner at Grant Thornton, said: “It is great to see privately owned companies – including many which Grant Thornton has helped to support – making such a positive contribution to the UK economy.
“Impressive leadership is ensuring they prosper despite tough trading conditions, with many companies expanding through their international operations and all making sure they retain and engage talented people in the UK.”
Other companies to make the league table from the East included the Danwood Group, Midwich, Gardline Shipping, Robinsons Motor Group and Acteon.
