Elite Telecom is one of the youngest companies in our Hot 100 list and, appropriately enough, it is a new technology company. Elite Telecom started up in 2003 and, by last year, boasted a turnover of £6.5m. In line with its aggressive acquisitions policy, it acquired GP Telecom Ltd for £3m in 2008. Elite Telecom is essentially a provider of telecommunications for business customers and, in its first year of business, landed an impressive contract to supply Everton Football Club with telecommunication systems. Elite Telecom also supplies security systems, making its service a real one-stop shop for companies in need of communications services.
