Profit Track 100

Founded in 1983 as a single store by brothers Adam Umarji, 62, and Imtiaz Umarji, 58, this car parts firm now has 26 branches across the north of England. Based in Bolton, it supplies parts, tyres and garage equipment and is run by the second generation of the family — directors Adnan and Adil Umarji, both 32 — who grew profits to £3.6m in 2018. They temporarily closed all operations on March 31, furloughing staff and paying 80% of the salaries for the 20 or so people who only joined in March and so were initially not being covered by the government scheme.
