2010 Fast Track 100

Rank: 81   M8 Group

This group operates two websites selling pet and garden accessories

If you need dog food, but don’t want to walk Rover to your local shop to buy it, then Kevin Hague’s company, Petplanet.co.uk, offers an online service with next-day nationwide delivery. Founded in 1999, the business claims to supply more than 8,000 pet products from its warehouses in Scotland, which also stock a range of gardening accessories and furniture for a sister company, Greenfingers.com, which was launched in 2002. Thanks in part to strong internet marketing, M8 Group’s sales have grown by 50% a year, from £3.2m in 2007 to £10.6m in 2010.
