PLFS Limited established in 2005 is a company based on the philosophy of consistent and continuing improvement.
The company was founded by its two Directors and shareholders in October 2005 to fill a gap in the market to provide furniture and white goods to the property lettings market in Essex and London.
The company leased its warehouse and office unit in Rignals Lane, Galleywood on a short 2 year lease. The labour force at the time consisted of the 2 Directors Ken Larkins and Barrie Lovett with David Evans for sales and Ben Larkins responsible for the warehouse and deliveries. The company was started without any client base and after 6 months of trading the first year end accounts at 31st March 2006 showed sales of £112,202. A modest start but through hard work and dedication by these initial 4 people the company branched out into providing carpet and other floor coverings as well as curtains and blinds for windows.
In 2011 the company made a decision to invest in a detailed Health and Safety policy and to become ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 accredited, to ensure the future commitment by all its employees to Quality and Customer Service.
The company has increased its turnover and profitability year on year with the last year end accounts at 31st March 2014 showing a turnover of £1.6 million with the original 4 staff plus an additional 16 employees servicing clients through out mainland Britain.
In 2013 the company moved from its rented warehouse in Galleywood to a 14,000 square foot warehouse in Basildon, with extensive office facilities which they own.
The company has launched a new initiative working closly with existing customers housing development divisions offering furniture packages for first time buyers and shared ownership customers. This initiative will help to acheive a projected turnover at March 2015 of £2.1 million.
