Co Down pharmacist Tom Eakin set up his company in 1974 to produce medical ostomy products, particularly skin protection and wound drainage products. It exports products to more than 30 countries. His TG Eakin has evolved to become one of the North's most innovative companies, generating pre-tax profits of £16.4m (19.2m) last year, and dividends of 21m have been paid out over the last two years. Sons Paul and Jeremy Eakin now run the business.
