SME Export Track 100

More than 80 jobs were saved when John Seaton, 76, set up this firm in 2007, after he bought the Dundee component repair workshop of FTSE 100-listed Wood Group. Six years later, private equity firm Foresight bought a majority stake for £3.5m, and chief executive, Dale Harris, 46, came on board in 2017. Specialising in the repair of components for gas turbines, it works with clients in the defence, marine and civil aviation industries across Europe and North America. International sales grew fivefold to £2.2m last year, when it also announced an exclusive long-term deal with Rolls-Royce.
