While downsizing his cladding installation firm following the 2008 recession, Lindsay McKenzie, 60, came up with the idea of using antimicrobial additives in wall cladding. He founded this Harrogate firm, which now sells hygienic wall cladding and floor coverings through partners such as the chemicals giant BASF, across North and Central America, Australasia and the Middle East. Exports hit £1.2m in 2016, thanks to its products being used in projects such as Jeddah Maternity and Children’s Hospital in Saudi Arabia.
