This Manchester company does much more than its name suggests. Yes, it imports, but it also exports, distributing batteries and lightbulbs. The company also holds an exclusive licence to manufacture and distribute JCB batteries, which have sold strongly in mainland Europe, Cyprus and Turkey. Managing director Sandy Chadha believes that brand strength, packaging and an extensive range have helped to boost export sales and he expects further growth from western Europe and India. The company’s international sales grew 70% a year from £2.3m in 2009 to £6.5m in 2011.
