Claiming to be one of the largest wine bottlers in Europe, this Durham firm can fill up to 90,000 bottles and boxes of wine an hour. Tony Cleary, 64, and wife Veronica, 63, founded the company in 2003 with Mark Satchwell, 52, to bottle wine imported through Lanchester Wine Cellars. It now provides services for wineries in Australia, New Zealand, California, Chile and South Africa, pushing international sales to £6.4m in 2016. A £3m investment in its facilities last year increased capacity by 25%.
