Like many successful businesses, MA Witcombe began life in 2006 out of discussions at the kitchen table. Husband and wife Mark and Sarah Witcombe realised that they could use their combined experience and expertise in roofing and banking to much better effect by creating their own company.
So while Mark undertook the practical business of industrial roofing and cladding by day, Sarah prepared applications for tenders that they then worked on together in the evenings.
A year later, M A Witcombe was incorporated and already building a strong reputation for the highest quality craftsmanship and customer service. As the company succeeded in winning high profile contracts, it began recruiting carefully chosen subcontractors, many of whom still work for the company today.
By 2008, Mark and Sarah had converted a barn at the family home into a desperately needed office. They were able to take on a full time estimator, Martin Tribe, now a Director of the company, whose skills in submitting realistic tenders and converting them into secured projects, helped the company to grow steadily.
Five years on and now with seven employees and an ever growing demand for their services, M A Witcombe were on the move again, to their current premises in Honiton. Since then, their workforce has doubled in size and they have continued to develop a reliable and extensive supply chain.
With a turnover in excess of £6million in 2017, M A Witcombe has come a long way since its kitchen table beginnings.
Architects seek out the company’s expertise to realise their cutting edge, often very complex designs. M A Witcombe also wins a vast amount of repeat business from highly satisfied clients who have confidence to commission projects that increase in scale and complexity.
