Trunki has won the The Sunday Times Fast Track award for Innovation.Richard-and-Rob300

Trunki recently ranked 42 on The Fast Track league table, which ranks Britain’s 100 private companies with the fastest-growing sales over the last three years. Each year the top 100 are invited to Richard Branson’s Oxfordshire home for dinner and an award ceremony.

Rob Law set about creating a Trunki for space travel. The result was a bespoke Virgin Galactic Trunki, which Rob presented to Richard Branson as a gift to celebrate the first powered test flight of his White Knight space craft on 28th April.

Rob said: “It was a massive achievement to have reached 42 out of 100 on The Fast Track league table and certainly a once in a lifetime experience to receive an invitation to meet with Mr Branson. The icing on the cake was definitely winning the Innovation award on the night.”

Trunki beat off competition from World of Books and kitchenware brand Joseph Joseph.
