Profit Track 100

Founded in 1921, West Yorkshire-based NG Bailey provides mechanical and electrical engineering services, as well as facilities management. Recent projects include the design and build of Manchester University’s engineering campus, and the rail control centre at London Bridge. Chief executive David Hurcomb, 55, oversaw strong growth in its engineering and services divisions, with profits up to £13.7m in 2018, although margins were slim. Since then, it has acquired Freedom Group — for an undisclosed sum — which maintains the UK’s electrical network infrastructure.
