Managing director John Athwal, 64, set up this west London firm in 1988 to import Christmas decorations from China. It has an office in Hong Kong and a sister business in Guangzhou, through which it buys festive items, Halloween novelties and garden equipment to supply 5,000 garden centres, supermarkets and wholesalers. A growing product range and cost savings helped profits hit £7.3m last year.
