Tech Track 100

Digital TV consultancy Farncombe provides advisory and engineering services, including product strategy, integration and hardware design, to customers such as Sky, BT and Virgin. Basingstoke-headquartered Farncombe was founded in 1991 by Andrew Glasspool and, in 2006, managing partners Dr Steve Upton and Jean-Marc Racine bought into the business. Sales, which include subsidiary Farncombe Engineering Services, grew 41% a year from £2.5m in 2008 to £7m in 2011. This growth is attributed to repeat business and the emergence of technology that lets people view content on multiple media platforms.
