Top Track 250

Managing director Shailendra Raja, 55, founded this Bolton-based computer hardware retailer in 1987. It specialises in products for powerful computers in industries such as gaming and electronic music production, and has held a royal warrant since 2014. Profits more than doubled to hit £2.7m last year, which it attributes to growing demand for the high-end graphics cards used to “mine” cryptocurrencies.
