International Track 200

Making and supplying own-brand and private-label cleaning products, this Leeds firm stayed operational as an essential business in the first lockdown. It distributes worldwide, translating its Stardrops, Wizz and The Pink Stuff brands into multiple languages and arranging logistics with retailers such as Aldi and Lidl. Joint managing directors Tim North, 55, and Henrik Pade, 58, led a management buyout backed by Mobeus Equity Partners in 2019, when exports hit £2.6 million.
