Fast Track 100

Business is booming for Gilmac Building Services, a refurbishment contractor. The company has won high-profile contracts at Zandra Rhodes’ Museum of Fashion and Textiles, at the Electric Cinema (Britain’s oldest) and at Holborn Town Hall. The north London company is also updating Liberty of London’s Grade I listed building by installing air conditioning and lifts. Gilmac, founded by James McMorrow and Kevin Gilger in 1991, recently expanded into plant hire and plans to be one of the first companies to offer plant hire on the internet. Its website is expected to go live in January. Large contracts, combined with the expansion in services, have driven up sales 90% a year, from £1.1m in 1996 to £7.2m in 1999. Gilmac appeared in 58th position in last year’s Fast Track 100 league table.
