Top Track 250

This Flintshire-based group was launched in 1978 as a T-shirt printer in the kitchen of the founders’ family home, and now supplies clothing to companies, retailers and consumers. During lockdown it initially stopped shipping customer orders, but these resumed in April when some distribution staff voluntarily returned to work after a health and safety assessment. It stocks 5,000 items from more than 135 brands, including Adidas and Nike, which it sells via its website. Under twins and joint managing directors Jonathan and Jeff Batson, 56, sales grew to £156.3m in 2019.
