Middlesbrough-based Wilton Group is an engineering company specialising in the design, manufacture and upgrades of subsea, drilling and production-rig structures for the oil-and-gas industry. Founded by Bill Scott and Steve Glenn, the firm had relied on repeat custom, but in 2008 it appointed a dedicated sales director, who is targeting growth in Brazil. In the same year Wilton also bought an Aberdeen design firm, to strengthen its design expertise. In June Barclays Private Equity invested £16m to support growth. Turnover has risen 67% a year, from £8m in 2007 to £37.6m in 2010.
