West Midlands-based Elta Group, which designs and manufactures fans and other equipment used to move air, has been able to continue business as usual during the pandemic. It was founded in 1996, when UK-based Elta Fans and South African firm AMS were bought out of the Air Movement Group. It now comprises 37 companies across four continents. Chairman David Ball, 53, oversaw sales of £140.5m in 2020. It has campaigned for the drop in air pollution seen during lockdown to be maintained.
