Bellwater

This Surrey firm was founded by Stephen Sproat in 1991 to fit out offices. By the end of the 1990s, the company had diversified into ‘internet hotels’ – the buildings that house large numbers of servers and telephone exchanges used by several companies. Bellwater fits out the entire building and also provides technical services, including back-up power systems and cabling. Last year the firm opened offices in Thailand and Singapore to take advantage of opportunities offered by the deregulation of the telecommunications industry in the Far East. Bellwater has boosted its sales 65% a year from £20.5m in 1997 to £93m in 2000, when it employed 190 people.
