Velocity Commerce began life in a Cottenham garage seven years ago and is now one of the fastest-growing companies in Europe in the FT 1000 report, one of just 27 UK companies to have made it to the top 100.

In December, the company was also ranked 11th in the Sunday Times Virgin Atlantic Fast Track 100 2018 league table, which identifies Britain’s fastest-growing companies over the last three years.

With an office in Histon and a warehouse in Bar Hill, the two founders, Eddie Latham and PJ Scott, have created a success story from a standing start. Annual turnover this year is expected to top £30million, with 2,000 orders despatched every day. But it all started very modestly: they both worked at play.com, and became friends.
