SME Export Track 100

Michael Grzybowski, 34, founded this Manchester company from his bedroom in 2008, after spotting a gap in the market for selling military gear online. It now retails products such as combat uniforms, army rucksacks and survival equipment. It has customers all over the world and increased its exports to an annualised £3.5m in 2016 — more than half of turnover for the first time — thanks to the launch of international websites and new products.
