Twin brothers Stephen and Richard Shortt run Intamarque, which distributes a selection of consumer products, such as toiletries and confectionery, to retailers and wholesalers at home and abroad. Founded in 2006, the Cheltenham business has done particularly well in Asia and the Middle East, where British-branded products such as Dove and Burton’s biscuits hold special appeal for many consumers and are big sellers. As a result, the company’s overseas revenue has grown by 207% a year, from £1.2m in 2008 to £11.7m in 2010.
