Founded in 2004 by Matthew Moulding and John Gallemore, this Cheshire company creates, runs and maintains the online content of companies such as Asda, Lovefilm and Dixons. Its own website, Thehut.com, sells a range of home-entertainment and electrical products and is about to introduce a selection of perfume, lingerie and outdoor leisure equipment, inspiring the likes of the Co-op to ask it to look after their online sales. A recent recruitment drive and burst of promotional activity have helped to push up sales 173% a year from £692,000 in 2005 to £14.1m in 2008.
