Large companies that are upgrading their telecoms systems and want to dispose of their redundant machines could do worse than ring Ghekko. The Macclesfield company buys back unwanted telecoms equipment, reconditions it and sells it. It also offers new handsets, headsets and network cards and runs a repair and refurbishment service. Customers for the goods, predominantly made by Nortel and Avaya, include Astra Zeneca and Azzurri Communications. Organic growth of 94% a year accounts for sales rising from £2.9m in 2004 to £10.9m in 2006, and founder Nigel Skinner is now looking for acquisition targets.

This profile reflects the company at time of publication and does not reflect any changes that may have subsequently occurred. Fast Track and its sponsors do not endorse, guarantee or recommend investment in any of the companies.
