SME Export Track 100

The Cure and Happy Mondays performed at the Glastonbury festival in 1990 — the first year this west London firm provided the event’s lighting and rigging systems. It has supplied the festival every year since, as well as working on tours, sporting events and theatre productions for clients including Beyoncé and Cirque du Soleil. Joint managing directors Pip and Dave Ridgway, 56 and 57, lifted international sales to £6.2m last year, when the firm supplied the Rolling Stones’ sell-out European tour.
