Taking on the likes of Bosch and Makita, this Sheffield company makes power tools such as circular saws for trade, corporate and DIY customers. Chief executive Matthew Gavins, 41, originally started a power tool repair business from his father’s garage at the age of 17, before launching the company in 1997. It now sells to more than 30 countries, and supplies retailers such as Screwfix, B&Q and Amazon, and America’s Home Depot. Profits almost doubled to £2m in 2014.
