International Track 200

From wall sockets to earphones and TV aerials, Telford-based Nexus Industries designs and makes a broad range of electrical products. The firm was founded more than 40 years ago and in 2005 Epic Private Equity backed a buyout, investing £4.3m for a large minority stake. Sales are global – mainland Europe now accounts for one fifth of international revenue. Under chief executive John Hornby, international sales have risen 30% a year, from £4.7m in 2009 to £8m in 2011.
