Fast Track 100

When John Lynch set up his own civil engineering firm in 1992 the industry was in deep recession. The firm learnt ‘tough disciplines,’ in Lynch’s words, and was in a good position to expand when the economy recovered. The company began doing project management work for other firms, but soon moved into maintenance, refurbishment and new development work. This year it launched a subsidiary to recycle building materials. It was also heavily involved in the Lewisham 2000 project to redevelop the town centre. The London company is now looking outside Britain for materials to cut costs and recently began to import hardwood flooring and door frames from Slovakia. Lynch’s sales have grown by 80% a year, from £609,000 in 1996 to £3.5m in 1999.
