Top Track 250

West Sussex-based Technetix designs and builds broadband technology, delivering 135m products a year from nine global warehouses. Strong organic growth and the 2015 acquisition of the supplies division of US technology firm Arris saw latest sales jump 34% to £118.5m, and profits more than doubled to £4.8m. To build on this, chief executive and founder Paul Broadhurst, 57, raised £7.5m in funding last year from the investment arm of TV and broadband company Liberty Global.
