SME Export Track 100

Tom Gozney, 34, used a £5,000 loan from his mother to launch this company in 2010, having spotted a gap in the market for reasonably-priced pizza ovens. His Dorset-based firm now sells a range of domestic and commercial pizza ovens — including fully modular designs that cut the cost and time of installation — and has signed up clients including Franco Manca and Pizza Pilgrims. Overseas success has been boosted by launching its lightweight, easy-to-ship and portable Roccbox oven, which has proved popular with customers in America and Australia. Exports reached £3m in the year to March.
