International Track 200

Headquartered in Basingstoke, Hammer customises, distributes and supports data storage products. It is led by founder and managing director James Stidwill, and its customers range from cinemas wanting to store digital film to companies storing their backed-up data. So far, European expansion has been led by existing customers, but Hammer is now looking to expand into the less developed eastern European market. With offices in Sweden, Belgium, Italy and the Netherlands, international sales have grown 23% a year from £18.2m in 2009 to £27.7m in 2011.
