Top Track 250

The pandemic forced this firm to implement safety measures in stores, and it made deliveries to customers assisting in the response to Covid-19. Led by group managing director Ian Haldane, 57, it supplies plumbing and timber building materials from 19 branches across Northern Ireland, northern England and the Isle of Man. Sales reached £127.7m in 2018 following two acquisitions, and the firm launched its first e-commerce platform this year.
