The beginnings of Sahara Presentations Systems date back to 1924, when it sold typewriters. Led today by Kevin Batley, 61, who is managing director, and his brother Nigel, 58, finance director, the company sells audio-visual products and software from brands that include Panasonic, Hitachi and NEC. The Kent firm also manufactures its own brands, including Clevertouch — a growing range of interactive touchscreens for use in classrooms — that helped lift profits to £3.5m in 2014.
