Leyland-based firm Cavity Extraction is celebrating a decade in business as it officially turns 10 years old and marks its most successful year.

The company, which offers a specialist cavity wall insulation extraction service using the very latest techniques to extract damp and wet insulation material, was founded by Lancashire entrepreneur Damian Mercer and has gone from a one-man band to a 12 strong team today.

In 2023 the business added six new positions to the company, with a further four expected to be added this year to cater for the increased demand for its services.

Towards the end of last year, the company announced it had invested £50,000 in drone technology which uses thermal imaging to survey homes on a mass scale and reduces cost, time, risk, and carbon footprint, when looking to identify inefficient cavity wall insulation.

Commenting on its success, Damian said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be celebrating 10 years in business, it feels like a major milestone and made even better by the fact that it is set to be our best year to date!

“It’s been ten years in the making, but the last 6-12 months there’s been a real step change in demand for our services, as our established reputation has led to high levels of both repeat and new business not just here in Lancashire but across the UK.

“I’d like to take the opportunity to thank my incredible team, none of which this would be possible without. We invest a lot of time and money ensuring each of them has every qualification they need to do their job to the best standard possible – this in turn is repaid in their loyalty and high quality of work which enables us to deliver on our commitment of excellence on each and every job we do for our clients.”

He added: “The addition of the drones has enabled us to take our product offering to another level and is invaluable to our housing association and property developer clients who have a large number of properties that we are now able to canvas on a mass scale, thanks to our new technology and equipment.”
