Helston-based bespoke staircase manufacturer, Spiral UK, has reported a strong rise in sales over the last year.
Despite the coronavirus pandemic, Spiral UK has taken orders of over £4 million in the last 12 months – up over 30% on the previous year.
The company has benefited from some exciting contract wins recently including stairs in the Royal Albert Hall, a large office fit out project in St James Square for an international private equity firm, the entrance staircase to Swansea Arena and the contract for flagship project 9 Millbank in Westminster for the largest residential developer in London, Berkeley Group.
Secretary of state Alok Sharma wrote to manufacturing businesses during lockdown recognising that the sector had a role to play in keeping the economy going during such unprecedented times. Many of the construction sites Spiral UK had ongoing commitments to stayed open during the period and, after adapting to the new Government guidance for Covid-19, Spiral UK did the same thing.
MD Eric Nicholls said: “We have been working hard with clients, architects and contractors to secure some very exciting projects over the last 12 months and our sound order book is as a result of this.
“Projects often take time to come to fruition and as always we are in discussions for a number of forthcoming projects and quoting some interesting work.”
The company employs over 40 people with a head office and factory in Helston, a sales office in Cambridge and staircase installation teams working across the UK.
