Fast Track 100

Based in Newry, Northern Ireland, this office fit-out and construction contractor has benefited from the influx of large US companies setting up bases in Ireland. Founder and managing director Paul McKenna, 51 — who had worked as a joiner for £8 a day as a teenager — increased sales to £94.7m last year. A fortuitous call from a former client, asking him to carry out a construction project, led him to set up the firm in 2001. It has since worked on more than 1,000 schemes for clients such as IBM and Oracle, and says it has 93% repeat business. It is currently involved in a number of brownfield and greenfield developments.
