From car badges to cylinder heads, this business designs and manufactures specialist parts for customers such as BMW and Aston Martin. Founded in 2010, it says it produces 70% of all exhausts fitted to the new BMW M series cars. Many components involve the use of high-performance materials, such as carbon fibre and titanium, and recent developments include a Bluetooth system for opening and closing exhaust valves to modulate exhaust noise. Led by managing director Mike Theaker, 51, sales grew to £9.7m this year. In August, the company opened a new 15,000 sq ft material and logistics hub at its Daventry base, creating 30 new jobs.
