Fast Track 100

One of our employees is so proud of his work that he photographs almost every project he works on,’ says Lee Batt, Damar Civil Engineering’s managing director. The Bath firm, founded in 1997 by brothers Mark, John and David Matthews, undertakes projects such as drainage, bridge strengthening and flood defences for clients that include Wessex Water and the Environment Agency. It also provides a service to rescue people stuck in confined spaces such as culverts. Sales have grown 121% a year from £359,000 in 1998 to £3.9m in 2001, when the company employed 28 people.
