Basildon, United Kingdom (PressExposure) May 10, 2013 -- Co-owner of the Underfloor Heating Store, Steven Lewis, has been awarded the title of Business Man of the Year 2013.
Steven swept up the accolade and impressed the judges at the 2013 Essex Business Awards, demonstrating vast reserves of passion and drive that have fuelled the success of his company and the enthusiasm of his employees.
Along with his brother Michael, Steven started The Underfloor Heating Store more than half a decade ago in his back garden. Not content with resting on his laurels after his award, Steven has an eye on expanding into Europe, with Poland, France and Germany his targets. It's not just about the business for Steven, however - he rewards his staff with special bonuses, such as individually tailored Savile Row suits.
Steven Lewis said:
"We put the company's success down to placing such a big emphasis on choosing the right staff, and providing rich opportunities in training and rewards for our team.
"Our message has always been to never give in and to pursue your dream - and I think this recent recognition as Business Man of the Year captures that sentiment."
The Essex-based company has grown impressively from its small beginnings. Its dedication to providing its customers with a first class service has seen its reputation grow, and seen a profit increase of more than 5500% against the profit in its opening year.
The Underfloor Heating Store was awarded the Growing Business of the Year slot at the 2013 Essex Business Awards, and as one of the country's top suppliers in underfloor heating systems, its products have also featured on home improvement programmes DIY SOS and The Home Show, broadcast on the BBC and Channel 4 respectively.
