Leec’s equipment is used at both ends of life: it provides carbon dioxide incubators for IVF and stem cell research, and also makes mortuary equipment, such as refrigerated body storage and tables for post-mortem investigations. Customers include hospitals, university anatomy schools, funeral directors and crematoriums. Managing director Paul Venners, 67, led a management buyout in 2010 and has since expanded the Nottingham business internationally. Strong demand in countries such as Russia, Ghana and Germany helped overseas sales reach £2.5m in 2016.
