Fast Track 100

If Barclays Bank employees in South Africa experience a power failure, they are likely to switch on diesel generators designed and manufactured by AJ Power. Headquartered in Northern Ireland and founded five years ago by Ashley Pigott, the company produces some 1,500 generators annually, of which three-quarters are sold to corporate and residential customers overseas. With its recent launch of biodiesel fuel generators, the company is planning to expand business in Africa and the Middle East. Sales grew 76% a year from £3.3m in 2005 to £18m in 2008.
