Fast Track 100

Michael Lewis, 39, and his brother Steven, 35, were self-employed electrical contractors in 2007 when the recession hit. Taking some time out, they spotted an opportunity in the underfloor heating market. After building a website showcasing their range of underfloor heating products, they appeared on the BBC’s DIY SOS programme, which helped to boost sales. The company reported turnover of £6.6m this year and is set to launch Polish, French and German websites in the next few months.
