    • ADC: designs and delivers mission critical telecoms and technology solutions into the most demanding environments, with a particular focus on the rail sector.

    Core's Founder and CEO, Tony Greaves, commented:
    "This is a testament to the hard work and expertise of a world class team. The common thread that underpins the strong performance of each of our businesses has been an absolute focus on customer requirements, and going the extra mile to deliver. We see huge potential for growth in each of the markets we serve, and we will continue to make the investments required to delight our customers."
