Fast Track 100

This Essex-based company’s sales rose by 88% in the year to August to £23.3m, of which £10m was generated in May and June alone, when it had to run 7am – 10pm warehouse shifts to keep up with demand. Along with rattan, metal and fabric outdoor furniture, the company sells other garden products, such as barbecues and outdoor Christmas lights, as well as dining sets. Managing director James Whiteley, 35, founded the firm in 2008; it now has six stores in the south of England — including the UK’s biggest garden furniture showroom, in Essex.
