Britain's Most Admired... Support services

Serco was fourth Most Admired overall, winning one in two of its bids and with 84% of planned revenue for 2008 in the bag.

1. Serco Group – 70.4
2. Capita Group – 66.8
3. Aggreko – 64.8
4. Intertek – 60.1
5. Bunzl – 60.1

Capita had to deal with a letter bomb in February, then with losing the high-profile London congestion charge contract to IBM. But the group still posted pre-tax profits up 18% to £103.8m for the six months to June, shooting up from 53rd to eighth Most Admired overall. Aberdeen’s Aggreko supplied temporary power to the Cricket World Cup and to the US army in Iraq. It capped a year of phenomenal growth by becoming Most Admired’s highest new entry – an impressive 13th. Next up is juice for the Beijing Olympics.
