A Worcestershire data cabling firm is surpassing even its own high expectations after signing one of the biggest contracts in the sector with Rolls-Royce.
And it is now looking to make its first steps abroad with a move into the Middle East market.
Zircom beat national competition from several major players to secure the contract to put in a network at Rolls-Royce.
And the success has seen it smash ambitious targets for growth, bring in new staff and move to new premises in Bromsgrove to cope with increased trade.
Staff at the company said they could not confirm the details of the Rolls-Royce deal until everything had been finalised, but said it was a very significant one for Zircom.
Zircom, which employs 15 full-time staff at its office in Upton Warren, near Bromsgrove, designs, installs and maintains cabled and wireless networks in workplaces across the UK.
In an interview with The Birmingham Post last year, managing director Graham Granville said the firm was doing so well he wanted to see turnover hit £10 million by 2010. Yesterday, he said that target would be hit next year, and the new projected target was closer to £15 million.
"Our turnover is already more than £8 million," said Mr Granville. "And it looks like we're going to hit that £10 million figure some time next year."
"I'm absolutely delighted at the way things are going. When I said £10 million last year I thought to myself 'oh no, I'm being a little bit optimistic here,' so when it turned out that we'd beaten that target so comfortably it was fantastic."
He said there was "one or possibly two" more major contracts in the pipeline for the near future, which would provide further significant boosts to the company.
"What we tend to do is to try to target preferred supplier agreements rather than try to go for every single contract that comes along," he said. "We give a menu for all our cabling services, setting out everything for potential clients.
"The great thing about signing big contracts like these is that your turnover goes up almost instantly."
Mr Granville was speaking from Dubai, where he and directors are looking into the possibility of expanding Zircom into the Middle East data centre market.
"The thing with this area is that there are so many people in competition out here, you really have to get into the high-quality side of the market.
"Your prices can never compare with the local people, so you have to look at how you can offer a better solution than what's being offered here."
Zircom is looking into business opportunities in Dubai as well as the rest of the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia, said Mr Granville.
And he said the only problems for the company, despite its national presence and its hopes to expand worldwide, had been its relative lack of business success at home.
He said: "We don't get much work in the Midlands, which is a bit of a mystery really, as we are probably the biggest supplier around, or at least one of them."
Zircom was established in 1992 to work with businesses on networking solutions. It went through a huge burst of growth in the 18 months leading up to 2006, investing more than £200,000 in technology, infrastructure and personnel with the aim of expanding the firm to meet the demand for its service.
