International Track 200

Leicestershire-based Joules formerly sold clothing at country shows before the founder’s son and current chief executive, Tom Joule, 47, took over in 1989. It now sells a range of clothing and accessories for the whole family through its website, stores and wholesale partners such as John Lewis. The brand’s signature wellies and rainwear have proved especially popular abroad, helping exports to reach £6.7m in 2014.
