About Eureka! Research

A market research company that stands out from the crowd

How it started

In late 2016, we had our own Eureka! moment and set about creating a business that differentiates itself from the rest of the market research crowd. ​Most research agencies claim to be experts in all sectors, but we only focus on markets where our expert knowledge and experience really shines through.

Between them, Rich and Dave have fifty years of market research experience. That’s a lot of focus groups and questionnaires! We wanted to build a new approach that took that experience and applied it to the categories we get most excited about. Over the past 5 years we have consistently provided high quality research to our clients, supporting them through every step of their research challenge, and it has been absolutely brilliant!

Richard Mace

Biography

Richard’s early work years were spent on the programming and data analysis side of research so he really does know what can and can’t be achieved and how long it might take! He still regularly marvels at his subsequent achievement in moving to the dark side and becoming a bona fide researcher.

Also a qualified electrician and self-confessed DIY nerd, Rich will be frequently found on a bike somewhere, screaming down mountainous single track or exploring the roads of Staffordshire and beyond in pursuit of the perfect sliver of tarmac. If he’s not working or cycling, he might be found in Andalucía, skiing, drinking cerveza or snacking on berenjenas con miel.​

Dave Ruston

Biography

Dave trained at the Office for National Statistics learning all about big surveys and big data before it was even a buzzword. The second part of his career was spent designing clever qualitative projects and telling brand owners what consumers really think about them. Most clients take it on the chin!

​Dave’s curiosity for home improvements was tweaked by a recent house renovation which left his poor wife and kids homeless for 4 months. When not cleaning paint brushes, he can also be found on a football field most Sundays boring his youth football team with a tactics board.

What we stand for today

Understanding disruption

In all things trade and construction, we consider ourselves market leaders for insight and research. We have worked with many of the major brands in the sector, helping them understand their trade, retail or distribution customers. We find the current flux in this category to be fascinating.

Commitment to support

During the Coronavirus pandemic we really showed our commitment to this sector by investing considerable amounts of our own time in targeted research to support tradespeople and the supply chain around them. This work was shared widely for free and used by policy makers and major stakeholders in Central Government.

Sector diversity

But it is not just about the trade; we work with many different brands across other sectors who are also experiencing disruption. We have undertaken considerable work in the food and drinks industry and have also supported several brands in the retail, health and charity sectors.

Giving something back

Perhaps unusually for a business of our size, we also assist local causes with free research and consultancy support, helping them to reach informed conclusions on their own community challenges. We have assisted local schools and sport clubs where we have our own vested interest and volunteered this time for free. What you see is what you get with Eureka – down to earth, plain-talking, and going the extra mile where we can.

Recognition

Within just 12 months of launching Eureka! Research, we were bowled over to be a nominated as a finalist for the Best Breakthrough Award at the Market Research Society (MRS) Awards. We’ve continued to be noticed for the work we’ve done since then… as illustrated by the numerous testimonials we have received and extensive press coverage for our work highlighting the difficulties that tradespeople were experiencing in 2020. We have been invited to present at the Builders Merchant Federation (BMF) forums and this year’s Bathroom Manufacturers Association (BMA) conference.
