Innovative medical textiles, implants and artificial ligaments are made by Xiros for medical companies around the world. One of its bestsellers is a textile-based product that helps repair and regenerate severely damaged shoulder ligaments. Chairman Bahaa Seedhom, 75, started the company in 1984 and has since built its distributor network to cover six continents, helping exports grow to £10.4m in 2016. Later this year, it will move all manufacturing into its newly expanded Leeds headquarters.
