His struggle to find mid-priced bathrooms with a high-end appearance while working as a property developer, led Wayne Spriggs, 44, to take matters into his own hands. He designed a range of composite stone baths and sinks, using a £10,000 bank loan and £20,000 of his savings. The Middlesbrough firm’s bathroom products can now be found in luxury homes and hotels from Claridge’s in Mayfair to the Sugar Beach Residences in St Lucia. International sales hit £1.6m last year thanks to growing demand from developers and retailers in America, where it has an office.
