Fast Track 100

Adam Share, 50, had 30 years’ experience in the waste industry when he founded this company in 2006. Initially dealing only with hazardous materials, the Staffordshire-based business has expanded to include the disposal of non-hazardous industrial waste. Growth capital firm BGF provided a £39m funding package in January 2019, which helped finance the acquisition of an industrial cleaning services company. Red Industries now provides waste recycling, recovery and treatment, as well as the disposal of used PPE. It also offers a consulting service to large businesses and public sector bodies, helping them increase their recycling rates. Sales hit £41.7m last year.
