Profit Track 100

Planet PVC builds conservatories and claims to sell 110 a week through a network of 23 retail outlets. This year, the company plans to open its first shop in Wales. Previously, Planet made only the conservatory frames but by 2004 it had opened a new roofing plant and a glass factory. These allowed it to integrate manufacturing and cut costs, which helped raise profits 47% a year from £1.2m in 2001 to £3.9m in 2004.
