This Oxfordshire company provides the equipment for indoor and outdoor wireless networks in schools, hotels, offices and on oil rigs, ferries and military bases. Run by founder Hugh Garrod, 54, Purdicom is the largest Ruckus Wireless distributor in Europe and offers training and site surveys to its resellers. Demand for wi-fi from smartphones and tablets — and government funding to roll it out to market towns and villages across the UK — helped the firm to increase sales to £12.5m in 2013.
