Top Track 100

When a £2.5bn stock market listing planned for early 2020 was put on hold by private equity owners Advent International as the pandemic impacted the markets, Rubix began donating personal protective gear to medics across Europe. It also sourced components for medical visors and ventilators produced for the NHS. Distributing industrial products from 750 sites across the Continent, it has been a key supply-chain partner during the crisis for its customers in the food and pharmaceutical sectors. It is led by chief executive Martin Gaarn Thomsen, 49.
