Police officers, paramedics and bailiffs in countries as far afield as Peru and New Zealand can be found wearing this firm’s body cameras, which help to improve safety for workers in public-facing roles as well as providing video evidence. Richie McBride, 54, and Robin Iddon, 52, founded the Edinburgh firm in 2002, having previously set up Axon Networks, which they sold for $65m in 1996. All of Edesix’s hardware is made in the UK and its software — developed in-house — allows users to upload video footage securely, blur faces and create clips. Sales hit £5.9m last year thanks to growing demand from overseas clients such as Abu Dhabi’s police force.
