Top Track 250

Established more than 40 years ago when group chairman Harold Martin, 85, began putting up fencing for local councils, this business has diversified into traffic management, safety barriers, waste management and vehicle maintenance. From its 16 sites, the Derbyshire firm works with clients such as Network Rail, Highways England and local authorities, helping sales reach £152.4m in 2019. The group took safety measures at the start of the pandemic, enabling it to continue most activities and expand its recycling facilities to handle higher volumes.
