Top Track 250

This Birmingham group was formed in 2015 when two plant-hire businesses merged with MV Kelly, a civil engineer founded in 1995 by Martin Kelly, 76, and his son John, 51. Still owned by the Kelly family, the group provides groundwork for housebuilders such as Taylor Wimpey, Persimmon and Barratt. The closure of building sites during lockdown led to Bridgetown beginning a redundancy process that reduced the workforce by about a quarter.
