Milgro is a fast-growing FD Gazelle again

Wednesday, October 17, 2018

For the second year in a row, Milgro has been named FD Gazelle by Het Financieele Dagblad (the largest Dutch financial newspaper). This means that Milgro is one of the fastest-growing companies in the Netherlands.

Milgro is in the middle of a growth stage which has already persisted a number of years. “We are not only growing rapidly, we also find ourselves at the end of a transformation,” says Laurens Groen, Milgro’s founder and co-CEO. “Twenty-five years ago, we began as a project agency for waste separation. Now, we have evolved into a full process partner for sustainable resource management. Our innovative approach and focus on data allow us to make a real impact in the transition towards the circular economy.”

In the past few years, Milgro has worked hard on scalability, which now results in significant growth acceleration. “This second FD Gazelle is a nice confirmation of the validity of our strategy,” says Groen. “In the next couple of years, we will not only enhance our impact for our current clients, but also connect many new – international – clients,” he predicts.

Real impact & results

For the past fifteen years, FD has crowned companies that show a revenue growth of at least 20% as FD Gazelles. This year, the organisers further tightened the entrance criteria, by including growth of personnel and profitability as award criteria. Even under these stricter rules, Milgro belongs to the summit of Dutch entrepreneurship.

“We appreciate that FD seriously considers the real impact and results this year,” Groen states. “Our clients do already experience that impact, not just on their finances, but also on their chances in the circular transition.”
