Fast Track 100

Paul Beasley, 48, and Jon Taylor, 47, invested just £3,000 between them to set up this recruitment firm in 1989. Today, Transline has more than 120 sites nationwide and has expanded its geographical reach to Ireland, Poland, Canada, Dubai, Thailand and, most recently, the US. The West Yorkshire firm specialises in the logistics, warehousing and manufacturing sectors, and develops recruits’ skills with initiatives such as its training academy, launched last year. Boosted by innovations such as biometric scanners that track attendance and send information to staff, sales reached £178.6m last year, though profit margins were slim.
