100: Go Interiors

1 Mins

This Harpenden-based firm is one of the country’s largest suppliers of dry lining, suspended ceilings, partitioning and insulation materials. If you want to check out its products, have a mosey around Birmingham’s Beetham Tower, one of the tallest residential buildings outside of London.

Gerard Abbott-Drake and John O’Leary remortgaged their homes and used the £150,000 proceeds to set up the company in 2001.

Business is clearly booming: Go Interiors opened its seventh depot in Warrington last year. Sales have jumped at an annual rate of 51 per cent, and turnover last year was £16m.
