International Track 200

This 146-year-old Liverpool company buys oils, waxes, fatty acids and epoxy resins from Malaysia, India, China and Korea, and sells them on to a wide range of customers, from pharmaceuticals firms to paint producers. Under managing director Philip Tarleton, 52, international sales grew to £9m in 2012, driven in part by a Dutch subsidiary set up in 2010.
