Whether it’s getting a blood sample to a surgeon in a hurry, a spare set of car keys to a stranded executive, or some engineering components to a production line in full throttle, this company aims to get things to people fast. Founded in 2000 by Hilton Lewis, a former accountant, Lewis Day Transport provides executive car-hire services to companies and specialist courier services for medical supplies and other items. The acquisition of smaller couriers and expansion from London to offer its customers national coverage has helped to increase sales 303% a year, from an annualised £300,000 in 2001 to £19.6m in 2004.
