This Cambridgeshire business started out making toys 50 years ago and has grown to export brands such as Fuzzy Felt to 20 countries. John Adams merged with Toy Brokers in 2009 after managing director Simon Pilkington, 50, led a buyout of both companies. Boosting its network of distributors in Europe, Asia and Australia helped international sales hit £3.1m in 2016.
