Its turnover in the year to December 2015 was £25m, up from £18.54m in the previous 12 months.

The construction and fit-out firm bolstered its customer base with the addition of new clients including Casual Dining Group, Thai Leisure Group, Mitchells & Butlers, Empire Cinemas and Langdale Leisure.

Medlock also enjoyed strong repeat business with major customers such as Premier Inn, Enterprise Inns, Greene King, JD Wetherspoon and Joseph Holt.

The firm, which has its headquarters in Oldham and operates nationwide, is on track for further strong growth this year.

Revenues in the first three months of 2016 climbed 14 per cent compared with the same period last year, from £5.5m to £6.3m. Major contracts completed between January and March included the £1m fit-out of Dukes 92 bar in Castlefield, Manchester, and the £1.3m fit-out of the El Gato Negro restaurant in Manchester city centre.
