Big enough to cope. Small enough to care. We are different.
Having been started in 1990, we have been in business for over 23 years. During this period we have built up our reputation with manufacturers and suppliers, and now have a great working relationship. This gives us a large catalogue of products we are able to offer to you, our customers.
Our mission is to advise our customers on the correct products for their needs, and provide a solution that is fit for purpose. To compromise on equipment may impact on the quality, reliability, or success of a job, and that is not good for us or our customers. Consequently, we stock only brands and products that we have tried and tested ourselves. These products are from manufacturers who offer to us what we would want as customers; great value and an after sales that meets our high standards of customer service.
With the increased use of the internet, it is very easy to find information about products available. We have worked hard to try and ensure our website provides all the relevant details about a product that you need to purchase with confidence. Should you have any further questions, before or after your purchase, you can contact us by email or by phone. Our Hanwell showroom (London, W7) is also open Monday to Saturday, where our staff can assist you further.

Andy - Project Manager
In 1992 ponytails and leather pants was the must have fashion craze… (At least for Andy!). Now over 20 years later, Andy is still with us (no ponytail, and no leather pants… supposedly) and now runs all our installations and special projects. He always gives his all on every job, and takes great pride in making sure all jobs have a professional finish.
