International Track 200

Originally a print management and printing business, today Adare offers marketing and secure communication services for blue-chip companies in 60 locations across Europe, the Americas and Asia — from sourcing promotional goods for Coca-Cola, to creating interactive apps and sending secure mailings for Legal & General. Overseas sales hit £45.3m last year. In April, private-equity firm Endless backed a £60m buyout led by chief executive Robert Whiteside, 57.
