It’s hard to pigeon-hole this manufacturing company. Through its divisions, Wordsworth Holdings provides everything from fixed furniture and loos for prisons, to tipper trailers, supermarket trolleys and rollcages. Alongside organic growth, a couple of timely acquisitions of ailing companies have helped boost sales, including the March 2005 acquisition of tipper-trailer maker Crane-Fruehauf. Turnover has risen from £20.6m to £65.5m in four years, while profits stand at £2.6m. The company is headquartered in Lincolnshire, alongside a 65-acre factory producing its equipment range. It was founded in 1988 by Duncan Wordsworth, who remains the sole shareholder. Managing director Niall Wordsworth subsequently came on board. Compound growth is 47.2 per cent.
