International Track 200

Based in North Wales, this company sells fabrics and haberdashery products online and from retail outlets in North Wales, the northwest of England and across Europe. Overseas sales have risen due to the improved performance of retail outlets in Estonia and Latvia. Growth is also attributed to an increasingly eco-conscious public who, like in the good old days, are repairing their damaged and worn-out clothes. The Abakhan family originate from St Petersburg and have run the family firm for more than 60 years. Overseas sales have grown 78% a year, from £1.5m in 2007 to a £4.8m in 2009.
