46 Building Your Business Through exporT There has been much in the press in recent months about the company Dusky Moon. The company was set up by two young mothers in 2009. Their invention was the `Dream Tube'. This consists of a fitted sheet with side pockets containing long inflatable tubes and is designed to stop young children from falling out of bed in their sleep. After passing UK safety tests and going into full-scale production the company won its first major order from the children's retailer JoJoMaman Bébé. In their first year of trading the company achieved a turnover of £250,000 with 15 per cent of sales coming from exports. By the end of 2010 after only 19 months in business, the company was exporting to no less than 35 countries. summary
