19: Wheatley

General construction company Wheatley offers its services to commercial, education, finance, healthcare, industrial, hospitality and housing and leisure sectors. The Letchworth-based firm is a one-stop shop for everything from painting and decorating to furnishing and design. The company’s core competency is house-building: principally houses with one, two and three bedrooms. Founded in 1964, this family business is currently run by MD Harvey Baker, who has achieved a latest turnover of £13.6m. Compound growth has reached 127 per cent over the past four years. Profits are pretty reasonable, too: £1.3m at a ten per cent margin.  www.wheatley.co.uk
