When brothers Simon and Steve Craig started their Sky TV installation business in 2001, the Croydon-based firm was just one of 112 Sky subcontractors in the country. Now it’s one of three, carrying out around 2,000 domestic Sky installations each day.
Simon heads up the operations and finance side of the business, while Steve deals with marketing. They’re no slackers. “I do about 120 hours of hard graft every week,” says Simon. It’s paying off: sales have grown 148 per cent a year from £687,000 in 2004 to £10.4m in 2007.
