International Track 200

Brand Addition offers multinational clients such as Michelin, Google, Intel and Caterpillar ethically sourced, company-branded corporate gifts, ranging from pens to polo shirts. Led by Chris Lee, 42, and majority-owned by HIG Europe, the Manchester-based company sells across Europe, is opening operations in Russia and Asia and is eyeing Brazil in the build-up to the Olympics. The trend towards centralised purchasing, rather than satellite offices buying separately, helped the company to generate overseas sales of £25.1m in 2011.

This profile reflects the company at time of publication and does not reflect any changes that may have subsequently occurred. Fast Track and its sponsors do not endorse, guarantee or recommend investment in any of the companies.
