Racking and storage specialist Fil (formerly Filplastic) saw a 60% rise in turnover last year after helping launch half of all new builders’ merchant branches in the UK.

The East Yorkshire company saw revenue grow from £5m in 2017 to £8m last year after being involved in creating 24 new branches, exactly 50% of all those that opened in 2018.

Branch locations ranged from Elgin in the north to Penzance in the south and covered every region of the UK in between.

In nearly all cases, Fil provided full design and fit out services to the client.

Despite the significant rise in revenue, Fil has plans for further ambitious growth and has recently invested £1.1m in a new warehouse and office complex in Spaldington.

The company has also invested in more vans, a new website and additional software to further enhance customer service levels.
