This Kent business traces its history to 1924, when it sold typewriters. Now led by Kevin Batley, 62, and his brother Nigel, 59, it distributes audiovisual products from brands including Panasonic and Hitachi. Its international growth has been driven by its own Clevertouch range of interactive touchscreens. Offices in Finland and Sweden have also helped to boost overseas sales, which hit £13.1m in 2016.
