Top Track 250

The West Midlands-based Elta Group designs and manufactures fans and other equipment used to move air. It was founded in 1996, when the UK-based Elta Fans and South African firm AMS were bought out of Air Movement Group. Since then, the business has made a series of acquisitions and today it comprises 19 companies operating in seven countries across Europe, Africa, Australasia and Asia. Chairman David Ball, 52, led the group’s expansion into India last year, and oversaw sales of £127.8m in 2019.
