Fast Track 100

When electricity suppliers such as Scottish Power, Electricity North West and Northern Ireland Electricity need specialists to refurbish their power lines or do emergency work, they may hire Electricity Network Solutions. The company was founded in 2007 by trained linesmen Aiden Gunning, 42, and Steven Hodge, 52, and in 2011 refurbished more than 700 miles of overhead cables. Under managing director Mike Snee, 48, sales have grown thanks in part to little competition – there is a general shortage of linesmen. The company has decided to train its own staff rather than hire subcontractors.
