A small, experienced and helpful team.

We are a team of officially 6 staff, but being a third generation family company, at times there can be a few more of us with "little people" helping out from time to time! Many of our team have been working in this industry for well over 10-15 years, some have spent the majority of their working life in this field and are commonly referred to as experts!

All of us are passionate about the products we represent, the industry we work in and are more than happy to help with any queries or information you require.
