Fast Track 100

Managing director Nick Glynne has reinvented this Huddersfield computer manufacturer since he acquired it in 1999. It now sells electronic goods in volume over the internet. The company claims to be the largest e-tailer of laptops in Britain through Laptopsdirect.co.uk. A year ago it used the same business model to start selling plasma and LCD televisions through DirectTVs.co.uk, and it has also launched Aircondirect.co.uk, which sells portable air conditioners. Easy Computers’ sales have grown 76% a year from £8.7m in 2004 to £47.5m in 2007.
