Fast Track 100

Refitting shops for Tesco, the Co-op and Iceland accounts for 75% of the business carried out by this Birmingham company. Probuild completes about 50 big refits a year and is involved with another 100 refits of smaller shops and offices. It also carries out maintenance and repair work. Founder Anthony Sherlock incorporated Probuild as a limited company in 2003, and in 2004 had just one big customer. Then Nigel Ford joined as operations director and together the two men have grown sales 142% a year from £666,000 in 2005 to £9.4m in 2008. Probuild is now branching out into work on schools and council buildings.
