Tents named after British beaches — including Studland, Croyde and Hayling — are distributed by Kampa to retailers in South Korea, Germany and Denmark. The Essex firm also sells caravan and camping essentials, such as rapid-dissolve lavatory paper and collapsible washing-up bowls, and it has developed its own lightweight tent and motorhome awnings. Exports hit £6.1m in 2016 under managing director Mark Lawless, 58, who opened a new distribution centre in Holland last year.
