VEAR, the Eastleigh-based fit-out and M&E firm, is launching a recruitment drive after turnover rose by more than 40 per cent last year.
Chief executive Hugh Turner said: 'We work for high-quality clients and just can't get enough of the right quality of tradesmen.'
The firm, which has run its own joinery factory since 1954, has clients including Barclays, HSBC, Lloyds TSB and McDonald's. Accounts for 2002 will show turnover rising to nearly £8 million from £5.6 million in 2001. Pre-tax profits are expected to pass £200,000, up from £194,186.
