International Track 200

London-based Pure Technology designs, manufactures and supplies glasses and ophthalmic lenses to opticians and eyewear retailers throughout Britain, continental Europe and North America. Selling under the Jai Kudo and JK London brands, the firm generates international sales through a combination of local offices and freelance distributors. Managing director Jamie Holoran says large deals with overseas clients, such as Sam’s Club in America (a chain of membership-only retail warehouses owned by Walmart) have helped international sales to grow 63% a year, from £1.9m in 2007 to £4.9m in 2009.
