  • The company, like many in the Caparo group, employs a large number of employees who are related. Fathers, sons, sisters, cousins, and daughters, all work alongside one another in what is a “family company within a family company”. Until recently, CMT employed the grandfather, father and son from one family. Paul Taylor hopes this family connection indicates that CMT is a supportive company to work for, “We firmly believe that our people are our biggest assets. We have regained our Investors in People accreditation three times, and were one of the first engineering companies in the Black Country to do so.”

  • Caparo’s $1.5-billion revenues come from Europe and the US, by 2010 the company hopes to notch up one-third of its revenues from each region, including Asia. Angad, who is Lord Swraj Paul’s youngest son, was hand-picked for the CEO’s job by his father because “of his appetite for risk and innovation”.

    His brothers Akash and Ambar are directors in Caparo while sister Anjali runs her own real estate business and is involved in a big way with Indian artists and the art market. “In family-run businesses, it may not always be family members who are best suited to hold the top positions,” says Mr Paul who has dabbled in film and TV production and also has a PE fund, a software company and has recently acquired a niche design firm.
