Tech Track 100

In 1995 a UK-based inventor developed a process that converted leather into a lighter, more durable material. This means its users, which include airlines, bus and rail operators, save money on fuel and maintenance bills. Strong demand helped chief executive Chris McBean, 54, raise sales to £7m last year.
