After finishing my apprenticeship with my father and achieving my City and Guilds in Carpentry and Joinery, I gained practical experience working for various well established companies. This enabled me to increase my confidence in Carpentry and Joinery, as well as liaising with others and working to overcome difficulties to complete projects. My ambition was to set up my own company, which I started 6 years ago, from which we have grown from strength to strength. As a company, we have seen a need in the industry for a company that is friendly, professional and experienced to deal with every eventuality.
