Set up in 1990, this Northampton company designs and manufactures furniture that features in offices and universities around the world. Chief executive Alistair Gough, 54, bought a 45% share in the company with a business partner in 2010. He then led a management buyout in 2016, helped by £5.6m of funding from Barclays and £10m from growth-capital firm BGF. That year, it purchased Denmark-based Four Design, Ocee’s manufacturing partner since 2012. Overseas sales accounted for 55% of this year’s total turnover of £33.5m.
