Lewis joins the business and starts selling gel products across the globe.
Simon follows and works with his father and brother to build the business.
Lionel sells the shoe shops and concentrates on developing gel products.
The gel products business is sold to a large multinational. Lionel deservedly retires to spend more time fishing!
