    Just in 2015

    I am not sure whether this is correct:
    "Just in 2015, the company doubled its turnover."
    This is supposed to mean that in 2015 alone, the turnover in question could be doubled.

    Re: Just in 2015

    Then say 'In 2015 alone, the company doubled its turnover'.

    Your alternative is unnatural.
