Founded in 1978 and still owned and run by Alastair Powell, 67, and his brother Michael, 62, this Middlesbrough business supplies electrical cables to industries including rail, construction and marine and offshore. Growth in its Irish subsidiary helped push sales up 18% to £310.1m in 2018, while profits fell £4.5m because of a downturn in copper prices.
