It has just completed a £12m contract for the Ministry of Defence at Colchester garrison, for example. Chairman Tony Bell and production director Keith Bindley led a management buyout of the firm in 1986, from previous owner Ansteel. They have grown profits 80% a year, from £675,000 in 2004 to £3.9m in 2007.
