Fast Track 100

As smartphones and tablets become more popular, the demand for accessories also grows. This trend helps to explain the rising sales of Activ8, a Hertfordshire distributor that sells phone covers, tablet covers and chargers to independent stores and online retailers. Managing director Stuart Conroy, 40, joined the company in 2000 after a career in IT and became the sole owner in 2007. The firm designs and manufactures products in China and is looking into supplying high street retailers with both its own-brand and white-label items.
