International Track 200

Having started life as a small chain of high-street pharmacies, this family-run business developed into a wholesaler of pharmaceuticals. Helped by favourable exchange rates, Arrowedge has expanded into mainland Europe, and the Poole-based company is now looking to sell to South American and Asian markets. Overseen by the company’s managing director, Ullas Patel, international sales have risen 162% a year, from £3.6m in 2009 to £24.6m in 2011.
