Profit Track 100

Founded in 1983 as a single store by brothers Adam Umarji, 63, and Imtiaz Umarji, 59, this car parts firm now has 28 branches across the north of England, including two new sites in Keighley and Halifax, which opened late last year. Headquartered in Bolton, it supplies parts, tyres and garage equipment. It is now run by the second generation of the family — directors Adnan and Adil Umarji, both 33 — who grew profits to £3.9 million in 2019. They closed all branches last March but were able to return to normal operations by July.
