This Gloucester valve manufacturer aims to capitalise on recent oil finds off the coast of Brazil and in the Gulf of Mexico. Its efforts will be helped, in part, by last year’s acquisition of a company that specialises in subsea engineering. Led by Maurice Critchley, 64, its 14 overseas sales offices and a factory in India have helped international sales to expand rapidly, reaching £58.1m in 2012.
