Since setting up in 2008, brothers Michael and Steven Lewis have had outstanding success with their online business The Underfloor Heating Store.
In the peak of a recession, the entrepreneurs turned to eCommerce and ekmPowershop as their primary sales medium and they’ve never looked back since. The Underfloor Heating Store has grown year on year, becoming a multimillion pound business and employing over 20 staff at its Essex headquarters.
They’ve featured in the media numerous times; in national newspapers and even on the television in programs such as the BBC’s ‘DIY SOS’ and C4′s ‘The Home Show’. This exposure hasn’t gone unnoticed; the company has gained a very strong following on social sites and they’ve even picked up a number of awards too! They were the proud winners of the Essex Business Awards in 2012, finalists in The National Business Awards and finalists in the UK Customer Satisfaction Awards.
Impressively, the business has made it into the final 100 of the prestigious Smarta 100 awards which has a prize of £11,000 for the first place winner! If they win, the team promise to donate the entire amount to the Little Havens Children’s Hospice who they’ve been supporting for many years. They currently give away 10 pence from every order they receive to the charity which amounts to more than £21,000 donated so far!
The team attribute a lot of their success to their unique and friendly service; all of the technical staff are qualified electricians which means there’s always someone on hand to help if you’re stuck.
