International Track 200

Led by managing director Matthew Hoare, this Shropshire business buys and collects the newspapers, magazines, junk mail and other paper products that households recycle each week. These are sold to paper mills across Europe and reused in a variety of products. Recently the firm has started trading with China, where demand for paper is rising rapidly. International sales grew 43% a year from £7.5m in 2009 to £15.2m in 2011, helped by a rise in global paper prices.
