Eakin

This second-generation family business was founded in 1974 by pharmacist Tom Eakin. Now led by his sons, Paul and Jeremy, Eakin makes products for use in stoma and wound care and supplies them to 30 countries. In 2007 the brothers led the £26.5m acquisition of the healthcare product manufacturer Pelican Healthcare, which more than doubled the company’s sales.
