After selling his transport business in 2006, Roland Llewellin, 51, founded this online retailer of power equipment before becoming sole UK importer for Hyundai Power Equipment in 2009. Last year the business received £1.5m in loans from Finance Wales and other sources, and moved into new 120,000 sq ft headquarters in Pembrokeshire. With 2015 sales of £5.5m, the company now supplies Hyundai, Honda and own-brand generators, pressure washers and other power equipment to 250 dealers all over the country. This year it expanded overseas to supply Mozambique, Zambia and Botswana.
