This Middlesex-based company is the white knight for thousands of frustrated weekend DIYers. Its stated aim is “to provide the consumer with simpler instructions, fewer parts and easier actions required to complete furniture assembly.” Titus sells furniture fastenings and accessories like concealed hinges and soft closing systems, both as standalone products in outlets such as B&Q or Wickes (via distributors), or as part of an assembly kit, where customers include household names such as Gower, Magnet and Ikea. Headed up by chairman John Dembitz, and chief executive Robert Appleby, Titus was incorporated in 1979. The head office remains in the UK (in Uxbridge), but manufacturing plants are overseas. It has a strong presence in the US where it is on the acquisition trail. Turnover has risen from £23m to £84m over four years. www.titusplus.com
