Founded in 1869 as a local grocer, this family-run business has since diversified into the property, engineering and care industries. Exports of £3.6m in 2016 were generated by its engineering division, Morris Site Machinery, which manufactures and sources industrial lighting, generators and other construction equipment. Its products are popular in Australia, where they have to meet strict standards. The chief executive of Morris Site Machinery is Chris Morris, 45, and Robin Morris, 49, heads the full Shrewsbury-based group.
