Top Track 250

Esher-based Keltbray provides engineering, environmental and construction services for the building and rail industries. It specialises in demolition and groundworks for projects including Earls Court and Crossrail. Last year, owner and chief executive Brendan Kerr, 52, bought concrete company Dunne Group out of administration, saving 400 jobs. Helped by the acquisition, turnover was up 36% to £369.4m in 2016, with profits more than doubling to £24.2m, assisted by the closure of loss-making projects.
