International Track 200

Retail collapses are bad for high streets but good for this Hertfordshire firm, which secures and alarms empty residential and commercial buildings, then cleans and prepares them for re-occupation. International sales grew to £120.2m in 2012, driven by its core markets in France, Germany and America. Led by chief executive Mark Silver, 52, it has bought two companies in Europe this year and plans to acquire more.
