SME Export Track 100

Founded in 2000 by husband and wife team Udy and Mala Agarwal, 50 and 49 respectively, this Essex company sells luggage to travellers all over the world. Its four brands, including Aerolite and 5 Cities, are sold through Amazon Marketplace and its own website, and the range is frequently updated to reflect low-cost airlines’ rules on cabin bag dimensions. Growth in Germany and America helped overseas sales hit £9.6m last year.
