Solihull’s top employer and employees have been named at the Solihull Chamber of Commerce annual awards.
FLR Group Director Jeff Walker was awarded Business Person of the Year 2014 at a ceremony held at Henley in Arden Golf and Country Club.
Jeff first first started Floor Restorations Limited back in 1982, born out of a partnership with his father’s business. The company has seen many changes over the years, but has grown from strength to strength to the business that exists today. Originally run from a small terrace house in Kings Heath, it now boasts a state of the art showroom in Monkspath. His success he says is because he gets it right, and if he doesn’t first time he will go back until he does.
The philosophises that are in place in their business today have been very much part of their personal development from learning from other experts in the field, to giving similar opportunities to young and inexperienced local people.
Jeff is the driving force behind the business and now employs 40 staff, and since moving to Solihull has taken on 3 apprentices. He is keen to give people who suffer from a lack of direction a chance to develop a new career. He is passionate about his business and because of this takes pride in his lads being complimented on their work.
FLR Group are a privileged member of the Solihull Chamber.
