Profit Track 100

Founded by Charlie Fry in 1935, this Dorchester housebuilder is now run by his grandson, Philip, 54, who is managing director. As one of the principal builders of Poundbury, the Dorset model town championed by the Prince of Wales, it continues to use traditional building techniques and local materials. In 2018 it completed 208 homes, lifting profits to £9.5m. Since the lockdown began it has stopped work on its 10 development sites in Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire.
