Fast Track 100

Founded by Steven Parkin in 1995, Clipper Group provides labelling, packaging and distribution services for high-street retailers such as Next and John Lewis. It also offers manufacturers secure warehouses in which to store high-value goods, whether clothes, tobacco or alcohol. Three acquisitions in the past few years, adding logistics tracking and security systems, have helped to grow sales 61% a year, from £5.2m in 2001 to £21.7m in 2004. The acquisition of DTS Logistics in October 2004 is expected to more than double sales next year.
