More than 6,700 printer cartridges, both big brands and compatibles, are offered by this Stockport company. Co-founded in 2003 by Jonathan Clark and Ian Cowley, it received a new lease of life in 2007 when Sean Blanks, formerly of BAE Systems, joined the management team. Blanks helped implement a new strategy, based on a method used to test fighter jets, and as a result, the company has doubled the range of products on offer and focused on more competitive pricing. The fresh approach has paid off, with sales up 62% a year, from £1.9m in 2007 to £8.2m in 2010.
