James and James

Companies ranging from small independents to high street retailers outsource their stock storage and ecommerce fulfilment to this Northampton firm. Set up in 2010, it operates a 125,000-sq-ft warehouse where about 100 workers pick and pack orders placed online. Most of its clients are small firms that don’t generate enough online orders to justify operating their own warehouses, but chief executive James Hyde, 34, says it also works with larger players that value its specialist knowledge of ecommerce. A partnership with New Zealand Post helped boost sales to £8.9m last year. It expects future growth to come from America, where it has recently opened a warehouse in Ohio.
