Profit Track 100

This Essex firm supplies car parts to independent garages through a national network of 129 branches, all of which are currently closed to retail customers during the lockdown. It says staff are still working safely at most to help repair vehicles used by key workers. Chairman Mukesh Shah, 60, and managing director Darren Wykes, 51, opened their first store in Kettering in 1999 and now run a fleet of more than 600 vehicles. The pair opened 20 new branches across England and Wales in 2018, growing profits to £5.7m that year.
