Track record

We’ve successfully grown and expanded since 1990, when Steve Brown and Paul Carroll set up the company.

1990

The Company was founded 25 years ago by Steve Brown & Paul Carroll, who had been
working together for a number of years at T B Parker & Sons Joinery. The owner was
emigrating and they decided to carry on the business

A number of managers came with us from T B Parker and are still with us today
