Profit Track 100

It is estimated that half of Britain’s 26m homes are inadequately insulated, prompting government initiatives to provide free and subsidised energy-efficiency measures for households. One of the beneficiaries of this legislation has been Wetherby Building Systems, which more than tripled sales to £61.1m in 2012. The company specialises in a variety of external wall insulation systems. Under managing director Bob Deane, 60, profits reached £11.8m in 2012.
