Basildon, United Kingdom (PressExposure) May 10, 2013 -- The Underfloor Heating Store has been named as Growing Business of the Year at this year's Essex Business Awards.
After the housing market crash jeapordised their electrical engineering business, co-founders and brothers Steven and Michael Lewis identified a demand for underfloor heating, and focused their energies on that. They went from strength to strength, and now their web-based business is a leader in the field of provising and installing underfloor heatin products.
The Underfloor Heating Store's journey from the brothers' back garden to its current prestigious base in Basildon's Festival Leisure Retail Park has seen a profit growth of 5500%. With their sights now sent on expansion into Europe, Michael and Steven paid tribute to the dedication and hard work of their staff.
Michael Lewis spoke about the accolade, saying:
"We were over the moon with the award, but along with all our staff members we've worked hard to ensure customer satisfaction and provide quality services. The growth has come as a result of our enthusiasm and drive.
"The Underfloor Heating Store started out small, but now we're one of the UK's premier providers.
"We have plans in the works to invest in TV and radio advertising, and expect to expand beyond the UK in the coming years - first to locations around Europe and eventually the world."
The Underfloor Heating Store has warehouses in various locations across the UK, and as one of the largest providers of electric and water underfloor heating, is the only business in its field to boast a showroom with fully functioning displays of its products.
The company's products have featured on national television, including DIY and home improvement programmes such as DIY SOS and The Home Show.
