More than 150,000 workers use this Surrey firm’s key fob-sized personal GPS alarms to stay safe while working alone. Founded in 2010, it has signed up more than 100 NHS trusts, 200 housing associations and hundreds of commercial organisations — including Pets at Home and Weetabix — as customers. Founders and brothers James, 45, and William Murray, 41, who started their careers selling printer cartridges online, secured initial funding from their businessman father Jan Murray, 70, who founded PC World. The Send for Help group is now made up of three companies — Skyguard, Guardian24 and Peoplesafe — the last of which was acquired in 2017 for £8.7m. Total sales hit £12.8m in the year to March.
