John Alston, managing director of Alstons Cabinets, said: “This is not dissimilar to being in 'pole position' and winning five consecutive Grand Prix, and we are very happy to be in this situation. “Especially when you consider both our companies are operating in totally different sectors of the furniture industry.

“It certainly proves the old adage 'if you want to offer good service, employ good friendly people' and this is something we are certainly not short of in our two companies.
