Based on the site of a historic shipyard that built ships for Henry VIII and torpedo boats during the Second World War, this Essex firm builds and operates specialist craft for the offshore wind farm sector. Using a patented flexible pod system that enables the deck space of the boats to be changed in about eight hours, CTruk is now extending its technology to the leisure and military sectors. Founded in 2008 by managing director Andy White, 59, the company has plans to build a £7.3m technology and training centre in Colchester. Sales reached £31.7m last year.
