We were established in 1968 by our founding couple, Charles, and Audrey. Back then, plastics were still a relatively new product that were being introduced into the construction industry. But our founders had a vision- that plastics were going to be a crucial building block for the future of construction. With their background in carpentry, it only made sense that these skills should be used in conjunction with newly emerging products. As such, the focus was on canopies and carports. These canopies were made to measure and sold as either self-assembly kit or with a complete install service; this began to form the company that we are today. We grew from canopies and carports, and evolved into selling bathroom products, and so much more.
Because of their success, we have become one the largest independent distributers of PVC corrugated & Polycarbonate multi-wall sheeting in the UK to date, and have continued to stay. Because of this, we are often consulted by manufacturers about the feasibility of products in the UK before they launch full production.
Staying at the front is never easy, and sometimes, people tend to miss what is happening around them- we also fell victim to this. We did not see the emergence of the UPVC fascia and soffit markets in the 1990’s. As a result, we were stuck playing ‘catch up’ for a while. However, we caught up incredibly quickly. To aid in ensuring that we do not miss any opportunities in the future, we always strongly encourage any sort of feedback from our customers, or suggestions about what you would like to see; or what you would like us to improve. Part of our continuous growth has resulted in us designing our own range of roofing bars. Over the years, we have developed products with multiple different aspects. The Avon, Vale, Eden & Peak etc glazing bars are prime examples. These products have been created entirely by us, with you in mind. We always try to offer products that will suit everyone, and this has resulted in a range of products that can all achieve the same goal, but not without different functions and unique aspects. We certainly try our best to please everyone possible.
Today, we are still quite like the founding beginnings. We are still a family firm with a strong belief that we can continuously improve and help people. We pride ourselves on keeping at the leading edge, as well as maintaining consistent communication with leading industry experts, as well as economic advisors. We are always looking at new ways to improve our products, service, and help you gain more value for your money. We use our own range of custom-fitted vehicles to offer a delivery service throughout the UK. This allows us flexibility with regards to deliveries, with our very own drivers able to offer a personalised service. Recently, we have also redesigned our website to give a more pleasant and interactive customer experience. We have included the ability to access your order history, thus allowing you to never experience any sort of hassle when you need to order something again. Our website boasts a forever evolving video collection- designed to help customers understand our products, with a personal touch. However, we also have a number of highly experienced staff at the other end of the phone; always available to discuss your wants and needs. These are just some of the improvements that are visible to you but rest assured- we work equally as hard on the behind the scenes to always ensure we can grow to help you even more. We intend to bring out a multitude of new, exciting developments and special offers in the future. To hear about them first, you should ensure you keep your records up to date with us. Please ensure to consistently update any address, email, or phone numbers so that we can always provide our best service!
