Profit Track 100

Fridges, freezers and catering equipment are rented to the organisers of events such as Glastonbury, Wimbledon and the Singapore Grand Prix by this Northern Irish company. Founded by the Lowe family in Lisburn in 1977, chief executive Rodney Lowry, 60, led a buyout in 2008. Irish private equity firm MML bought a 55% stake in 2014 for an undisclosed sum, exiting in a deal that gave the company a £60m enterprise value. At this point, Perwyn Advisors, a London-based private equity firm, acquired a 60% stake. Profits hit £4.4m the same year, boosted by expansion to locations that include Dubai, Las Vegas and Shanghai.
