International Track 200

This Rotherham firm makes aluminium and steel parts for offshore wind farms, construction equipment and military vehicles. Customers include Caterpillar, BAE and Rheinmetal, and its exports go to mainland Europe, America, the Middle East and North Africa. MTL says it is the first UK firm approved to supply the German equivalent of the MoD. In 2006, Henry Shirman led a management buyout backed by Caird Capital – corporate financiers Dow Schofield Watts also took a stake. International sales grew 29% a year from £2.4m in 2009 to £4m in 2011.
