International Track 200

French television used this firm’s aluminium panels to build the studio for its coverage of the European Football Championships in 2010. Shop displays and petrol stations also use the panels, which are sold all over the world. Managing director Andrew Cock, 51, founded Exeter-based Multipanel in 2004, and last year the company posted international sales of £21.1m. It makes its products in China through a joint venture but has decided to bring part of its production back to Britain, a move that it says will enable it to offer a faster service to its customers, particularly those on the Continent. It is investing £12.5m in a new factory in Dover that will create 70 jobs.
