Staircraft designs and manufactures timber building products, such as staircases, joist floors and door linings, at its nine UK facilities. Managing director, Andy Hamilton, 52, founded the Nuneaton-based company in 1985 with a £5,000 loan from his father after leaving school without any qualifications. In 2015, Travis Perkins, the builders’ merchant, took a 15% stake in the business for an undisclosed sum. With customers including the UK’s 20 largest housebuilders, sales reached £26.3m in 2016. The company says it is now the largest staircase manufacturer in Europe, with 1,000 new houses built each week using its products.
