The FEBE Growth 100 looks to celebrate the true spirit of entrepreneurism by recognising Britain’s fastest-growing, founder-led private companies with the list ranking companies based on their compound annual growth rate (CAGR) in sales over the last three financial years. Ross Teague, CEO and founder of Nebula Global Services said: “As a serial entrepreneur, I formed the idea of Nebula during the pandemic back in 2020 following the successful sale of my previous business. My concept was simple, to create a sustainable global technology community for the benefit of future generations through an obsession to source-local, sourceresponsible and source-ethical. The journey we have been on since Nebula’s inception has been nothing short of incredible, and to be listed alongside this fantastic cohort of UK businesses is very humbling.” Three-year warranty TSC Auto ID is issuing a three-year warranty, instead of the usual two, on all its desktop printer models purchased in the EMEA region. “Providing an extra year’s warranty will enhance peace of mind and assurance to our customers,” said Bob Vines, UK, Ireland & Nordics country manager for TSC Auto ID. “We are additionally offering complimentary repair services or product replacements for any complications arising from manufacturing flaws during the warranty term.” The three-year warranty is available across the whole range of TSC Auto ID desktop printers including the new TH/DH Series launched last autumn.
