This company has its roots in a 1950s motor racing team whose drivers included Graham Hill and Jackie Stewart. When the team closed, the father of current managing director, Sean Walker, 60, turned to supplying automotive parts. It now distributes more than 25,000 products under the FAI brand to 60 countries from its 68,000 sq ft warehouse in Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire. Growth in Europe helped international sales hit £13.7m in 2017.
