The Houseman Group is still steadily growing in a tough market place. With a diverse portfolio of different activities, our MD Rob Houseman explains why. ' In a recession hit UK, a company can't just sit back and expect business from existing clients to carry them through. A fresh and very different approach is needed when times are tough and diversity is the key'. 'We have concentrated mainly on the construction industry in the past as our main core business and although our main activities lie within this sector we have moved outside of our comfort zone with new ventures in unconnected territories. Industries as far removed as 'Fireworks' have given us a different aim for focus and as long as our eye doesn't get taken off the ball with our existing activities, I feel it is good to have a few baskets in which one can place their eggs.'

A Houseman Dry Lining Crew have just returned from Paris France where we were contracted to build The Hospitality and Press Chalets for Boeing for The Paris Airshow.

Working closely with the main contractor, Houseman dry lining were contracted to partition the vast temporary structures into a hospitality area for Boeing's VIP guests and a Press building for their Media partners. The structures incorporated a Theatre, Restaurants, kitchens and lounge areas and both boasted superb viewing terraces for the show.

With very intense time scales for the build, Houseman Dry Lining finished before the deadline and on budget.

BTCC Section
Special Tuning Racing have named Houseman Dry Lining as their new title sponsor for 2011.

It means the STR Seat Leon race cars will carry premier Houseman livery at each round of this year's Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship (BTCC). In addition 2011 will also see a re-branding for Special Tuning Racing, previously named Special Tuning UK.

We felt in order to move the team to the next level in terms of on track performance and make the team more attractive to corporate partners, we needed to launch a new brand. The transition from Special Tuning UK to Special Tuning Racing is now complete, explained John Boardman, STR team principal.
