LDC-backed Mini-Cam debuts in the Sunday Times SME Export Track 100

Mini-Cam, the Warrington-based pipeline inspection equipment specialist, has been recognised for exceptional international growth in The Sunday Times SME Export Track 100 for the first time. 

The business places 57th in the league table, which ranks Britain’s small and medium-sized businesses with the fastest-growing international sales. 

Over the past two years, international sales have grown by 53 per cent following the business’ expansion into new markets, including Central and South America. It now exports to more than 40 countries worldwide. In its latest financial year it recorded revenues of £10.6m – a third of which were generated by overseas sales, something the business is continuing to see increase. 

Nigel Wilson, managing director at Mini-Cam, said: “We are delighted to feature in the Sunday Times Lloyds SME Export Track 100. This recognition reflects the hard work of our excellent team in driving international sales growth for Mini-Cam and we look forward to expanding our overseas footprint further during 2017.” 

LDC backed the management buyout of Mini-Cam in July 2015, providing additional funding to invest in product innovation and drive international growth in new and existing markets.
