Tech Track 100

Spectrum Medical has developed life support systems used to treat critically ill Covid-19 patients, particularly in America and Germany. Staff have worked from home where possible, and in Italy, its new business providing disposable, sterile products has adopted new shift patterns to increase separation in its labs and cleanrooms. Sales increased to £33.1m last year under chief executive Steve Turner, 61, who cofounded the company in 2006. Many of the specialist cardiac hospitals in more than 60 countries that use its devices have ceased elective surgery, but it say its manufacturing hub in Cheltenham has remained busy.
