The London Stock Exchange Group has today published the book, “1,000 Companies to Inspire Britain” – and Liniar’s parent company, Flamstead Holdings Ltd is delighted to be included in the list, which comprises the most inspiring small and medium sized companies in the UK.
All of the companies included demonstrated a positive growth in revenue, employee numbers, workspace, contract wins and/or patent filings over the last four years.
The overall list reveals that the UK has a diverse economy, with companies representing over 100 different sectors – and, encouragingly, based in every region of the UK.
The growth of the Liniar brand, owned by Flamstead’s trading company HL Plastics Ltd, has been a remarkable success story – from an industry that had, until 2008, seen little innovation for many years. Manufacturing PVCu profile for windows, doors and glazed roofs at its plastic extrusion factory in Derbyshire, Roger Hartshorn and his team designed the innovative Liniar window system from scratch, building the latest technology into every possible design aspect.
Window fabricators love Liniar as it’s easier and quicker for them to manufacture a complete window or door.
Fitters love Liniar as on-site installations are faster, go more smoothly and require less after-care than other ranges.
Home-owners love Liniar as the products look beautiful, a wide range of colours are available, it’s completely lead-free – and as Liniar is also the most energy efficient window profile around, it saves them money on fuel bills.
Liniar inventor and Flamstead Managing Director Roger Hartshorn commented: “We’re delighted to be recognised in this inaugural list as a forward-thinking company that has helped to generate job creation since the financial crisis began. Being described as one of the UK’s most vibrant companies is testament to the hard work put in by the whole team at Liniar and it’s great to know we’re helping rebuild the UK economy.”
