Philip, having taught ‘Design and Technology’ for a number of years in Wiltshire, returned to his native Cornwall and got involved with the glazing industry.
He started the business working from home, buying products from Plymouth. Shortly after he acquired premises in Redruth and began manufacturing frames to a superior standard. Having purchased the present premises in 1993 the company still insists on producing their own products to maintain superior specifications.
In 2001, uniquely a paint booth/facility was installed to spray uPVC in virtually any colour. No other company to our knowledge has made this investment in Cornwall. This has been a great success, partly as it enables us to offer a wide range of colours than are available in aluminium and at considerately lower prices.
Another product range offered is glass balustrading. We had been installing these for many years, but actively marketed them during the recession, helping to keep us busy. The ‘frameless’ types have now become very popular, although the most expensive.
Philip and his highly trained and experienced team will continue to be market leaders, offering the widest range of products being well designed, manufactured and installed.
