Plymouth commercial interior fit-out company, Karris Ltd, are celebrating the end of a momentous month in the company's history with the completion of two major landmarks in Plymouth and Exeter and being shortlisted in The Herald Business Awards' Small Business of the Year category.
March saw the official opening of Plymouth's Life Centre for which Karris Ltd were commissioned to supply the interior furnishing.
Karris were selected by Leicestershire's Sports and Leisure Management Ltd., who were keen to work with a local company for the fit out of the building's front and back-of-house furnishing.
Vince Brooks, Sales Director at Karris Ltd said: "The whole Karris team are delighted with our recent accomplishments. To be selected to supply the interior furnishings for two of the most prestigious new developments in the South West is a fantastic achievement, yet alone be shortlisted for Small Business of the Year."
"Since the business was established in 2003, our commitment to delivering only the highest quality service and interior fit-out solutions has helped us to develop a very strong reputation. Our clients' trust in the standard of our work has, in no doubt, helped us in securing such high-profile contracts."
"To be shortlisted for Small Business of the Year was simply the icing on the cake. We have been very fortunate to have been able to enjoy a period of sustained growth over the past few years, despite the difficult economic climate."
"In past years, there was a trend within the industry of companies by-passing the services of a commercial fit-out company and dealing directly with the manufacturers. However, in recent time we have witnessed a revert to this process, with an increasing demand for the specialism and expertise offered by companies such as ourselves in order to deliver bespoke fit-out and interior furnishing solutions tailored specifically to their needs."
"As we look towards the future, we hope to continue our period of sustained business growth with an extended sales team and possibly a new showroom and premises."
Alongside the opening of the new Life Centre, Karris Ltd have also completed the installation of the interior furniture for Exeter's Oxygen House, the new headquarters for ATASS Group.
Located in Exeter Business Park, Oxygen House is the largest commercial development in Exeter for five years and is leading the field in the eco-conscious property arena. The 40,000 square foot building received a BREEAM 'Excellent' at design stage in recognition of its environmental credentials.
Karris Ltd were established in 2003 by Perri De Wan. The company's name is derived from the Australian 'Karri' tree which is famed for developing strong foundations underground before growing upwards.
Vince Brooks joined Karris in 2009 as Sales Director and, since then, the company has experienced a period of rapid growth and has developed a reputation as one of the leading commercial interior fit out companies in the South West.
