Guardian24’s parent company, Send For Help has today been announced as one of Britain’s fastest growing companies.
The Fast Track 100 list is published annually in The Sunday Times. It ranks Britain’s top 100 private companies with the fastest growing sales over their latest three years. The company ranks at no. 47 in the 2016 league table.
Brothers James and Will Murray founded the award-winning Send For Help in 2010. They spotted a gap in the market to provide lone worker protection using pioneering technology.

Operating through its two subsidiary brands Skyguard and Guardian24, the company uses key fob sized GPS personal safety alarms and apps to provide 24/7 personal protection to more than 100,000 lone workers and people who are at risk.
It primarily operates in the UK and Ireland, serving more than 50,000 end users. It boasts 100 NHS Trusts, 150 local authorities, 200 housing associations, and hundreds of commercial organisations, ranging from Tesco to Travelodge, British Gas to Boots.
The firm, which generated sales of £6.1m this year, is backed by family investment from James and Will’s father technology entrepreneur Jan Murray, former PC World and Internet Technology Group founder.
James Murray stated, “This is a significant milestone for Send For Help and marks the end of a successful year for the business, which saw our annual turnover almost double. We’re excited about building on this growth into 2017 and continuing to serve our clients.”
