Hampshire based, Arqiva, which enables millions of people to access TV, radio and mobile phone networks has been named one of the UK’s biggest private firms.
Arqiva is behind around 8,000 active telecom towers and is the only national provider of terrestrial and radio broadcasting. It works with giants such as BT-EE, Vodafone, O2 and Three, as well as independent radio groups and broadcasters such as the BBC, ITV, Sky, Turner and Canal+ and utility companies including Thames Water.
Arqiva, based in Crawley near Winchester, is placed at number 65 in the league table and is the only Hampshire-headquartered company in the list.
Chief executive Simon Beresford-Wylie said: “We’re pleased to once again be included in the Sunday Times HSBC Top Track 100, and to be one of the 17 firms headquartered in the southeast with our headquarters just outside Winchester. Arqiva may not be a household name, but we are the only national provider of terrestrial television and radio broadcasting in the UK, delivering Freeview services, and digital and analogue radio to the nation’s homes. We are also an independent provider of telecoms towers, serving all four mobile network operators meaning that our infrastructure helps connect millions of people and machines, wherever they are.”
