Profit Track 100

This Northern Irish firm rents fridges, freezers and catering equipment to the organisers of events such as Glastonbury and Wimbledon. Recently it has supplied refrigeration units to NHS kitchens as they deal with the extra pressure created by Covid-19. Founded by the Lowe family in Lisburn in 1977, it now has 11 offices across three continents and sells to more than 140 countries. Last August it acquired portable kitchen supplier PKL for an undisclosed sum. Under the leadership of chief executive Rodney Lowry, 62, profits reached £6.2m in 2019, boosted by growth in the Middle East.
