COMPANY PROFILE: Contender

Peppa Pig is its most successful brand, but, as Helen Jacobs discovers, there's lots more going on too.

The company has developed significantly in the 12 years since founder Richard Bridgwood had the idea of starting a DVD distribution business. Then came the idea to create its own IP. Hence, Tractor Tom was born.
