This company’s extraction systems remove hazardous dust and fumes from the workplace. Its technology is used to make consumer goods, as well as in electronics manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, dentistry and printing. In 2015, managing director Tony Lockwood, 57, led a £23m buyout backed by private equity firm LDC. Bofa has four manufacturing sites in Poole, a US facility, and a German office, which opened in January last year. Increasing health and safety regulation helped international sales reach £21.1m in 2017.
