Fast Track 100

Founded in 1979 by Surjit Pandher, 60, Himalaya Carpets is a family-owned carpet retailer that has also branched out into property. Now selling from five stores across London and Slough, the firm also stocks more than 1,000 rugs. Sales increased to £8.4m in 2012, due to demand from buy-to-let landlords, while the company has also converted a three-screen cinema into a shopping centre with more than 40 outlets.
