Popsa's CEO and Co-Founder, Liam Houghton, said:
I'm delighted that the FT has once again ranked Popsa amongst the fastest-growing companies in our home continent.
This recognition is a wonderful reward for our intense efforts in continuing to innovate in the midst of an incredibly turbulent period of history. I congratulate the other companies on the list in achieving similar feats.
Our business is now operating on a global scale, and so I want to give a special thanks to our team and all of our partners who kept us going at full speed during the pandemic.
Popsa generates and distributes personalised goods across all of North America, Europe and Oceania, and now has manufacturing and operational presence in Asia and Africa too. User experiences and communications are localised into 12 languages and products are fulfilled from 8 facilities around the world.
In 2022, France was the company's top performing market whilst the United States was by far the fastest-growing both in terms of revenue and new customers.
Popsa's CTO and Co-Founder, Tom Cohen, said;
This ranking reflects just how universal the problem we're solving is; so many people have an innate desire for a healthy form of processing through their photos so that they can build a better sense of self.
I'm so proud that the team at Popsa has risen to this challenge.
Popsa's Chairman, Declan Mellett, added;
We're currently investing a huge amount of time and effort in building the next-generation of our products; an automated experience that harnesses the very latest advances in data-driven technology.
2023 is now the fourth consecutive year Popsa has won an award for its growth, yet we feel that we've only scratched the surface on realising our ambitions.
