Laying floors for Marks & Spencer, the NHS and Berkeley Homes, this company provides screeding, the concrete layer applied to bare floors before wood or carpet is laid. From 2003, it drove growth by adding resin services, the painting or varnishing of floors, and under-floor heating installation, which made the firm attractive to customers that were fitting out shopping centres, hospitals and offices. Founded by Paul Foames and Victor Cottam, the company has boosted its sales 106% a year from £518,000 in 2001 to £4.5m in 2004.
