International Track 200

The first plastic storage box that Really Useful Products made was designed by managing director Mike Pickles to hold his archive files. The company now produces a range of boxes for the home and office as well as desk-top accessories. Winning contracts to supply stationery retailer Staples in Britain led to large contracts with the chain in mainland Europe, and with Staples, Office Depot, Office Max and Walmart in Canada. International sales have risen 42% a year from £6.3m in 2009 to £12.7m in 2011.
