Profit Track 100

This Telford-based group makes and distributes towels, toilet paper and dispensers from its 11 sites in the UK and Spain. Under founder and chairman Paul Fecher, 74, profits rose to £3.9 million in 2019, helped by three acquisitions, including the Sidcot Group in September that year. A restructuring led to the closure of its site at Penygroes in north Wales in October 2020, but last year it invested more than £7 million in its Birmingham facility to increase the company’s total output to 2.5 million toilet paper rolls daily, creating 27 new jobs in the process.
