Peter Carnall, 40, and Brett Watmough, 50, founded Eurostar in 2007 after spotting an opportunity to export surplus electronics. The Staffordshire company buys end-of-line and excess stock from large retailers, focusing on consumer electronics, such as phones and tablets. It sells them to businesses and wholesalers and has a small retail division. Demand from Europe boosted exports to £47.1m in 2017. In March this year, it signed a deal to become the sole UK distributor of Energizer’s long-life mobile phones.
