International Track 200

Owner Robert Palmer, 46, started his Suffolk business 20 years ago with a £6,000 redundancy payment. Today, with valves worth £60m held in five warehouses, RPV can offer very fast delivery times to its global oil and gas customers, which helped exports reach £37.6m in 2013. The company also provides engineering, testing and coating services following two acquisitions in 2012 and 2013.
