Who we are

About us

Our Journey

We can trace our manufacturing heritage as far back as 1964.

Our first patented product was launched in 1985 and the Retail Displays division of our business was established 27 years ago.

Over the past 50 years we have evolved into a major creator of bespoke retail displays for exciting brands. We have become specialists in the design and manufacture of contract furniture and are passionate innovators of workspace solutions.

With three manufacturing plants in Thetford, Norfolk, giving us over 40,000 square feet of space, our design team and craftsmen work side by side to bring world class projects to life.

What We Believe

We solve problems company value

We solve problems

We believe in the power of creativity. In the transformational effect of going upstream of the stated challenge to define the heart of the problem and delivering more effective solutions than clients or customers thought possible. At the core of everything we do every day is creativity — an ability to use an innate sense of inventiveness to create something that solves a problem.

We are active partners company value

We are active partners

The relationships we build are more than just transactions. We are strategic partners to our clients, helping them to better define challenges and collaborating to deliver better solutions. And we are partners to each other, across the areas of our business we collaborate to reach the best outcomes together.

We make it happen company values

We make it happen

We graft and we deliver. Our manufacturing heritage means we build what we say we can, and our skilled teams of people still deal in wood and steel, in nuts and bolts. And in every aspect of our business we do everything in our power to make a difference to our clients. We never over-promise on a project, which means you can trust us to deliver. And we always go the extra mile.

We look forward company value

We look forward

Our business grows by looking to the future. By recognising that nothing stays the same forever — which is why we’re meeting new suppliers and building new networks, making advances to be ahead of the curve. And by understanding that our world is changing — which is why we’re exploring new technologies and possibilities, and why we’re able to consistently bring new ideas to the table.
