International Track 200

Having started life as a small chain of high-street pharmacies, this family-run business developed into a wholesaler of pharmaceutical products. Helped by favourable exchange-rate movements, Arrowedge has had a lot of success with exporting to the Continent. The Bournemouth-based company is aiming to bring a new range of over-the-counter products into Britain and other European Union countries. Overseen by the company’s managing director, Ullas Patel, international sales have increased by 222% a year, from £1.5m in 2008 to £15.2m in 2010.
