International Track 200

Turbochargers found in Audis, Ferraris and Porsches use the specialist valves made by this company, which saw its international sales boosted to £30.2m in 2011. Helical Technology manufactures its products in China and India, and hopes that opening a factory in Mexico in 2014 will help turbocharge its own expansion into the Americas. The Lancashire-headquartered business was founded by James Morris, 81, and is now run by his sons Alistair, 52, and Charles, 57.
