Fast Track 100

Managing director David Field, 56, founded this Colchester-based company in 2011 after being made redundant. He began by selling imported goods from China at local car boot sales, and now the business sells branded and own range products via Amazon, eBay and through its own website. Earlier this year, sales reached £7.1m — half of which were international sales due to rapid growth in America and strong revenues in Europe and Australia. Japan is a focus for future expansion.
