Apical develops microchip technology used in more than one billion mobile devices. Clients include Chinese telecoms giant Huawei and South Korea’s Samsung. Booming sales of smartphones lifted turnover — which is all international — to £16.6m this year. In March it launched a new microchip technology which uses sensors to learn an individual’s behaviour, and has potential applications ranging from smart home security to elderly care. Apical is run by founder Michael Tusch, 46.
