We have turned 1 years old! Celebrating 1 year in business


We have turned 1!

We are celebrating a year in business and what a year it has been for us! We have been through so much already, but it has been mostly a year of learning, growing and being patient.

We started off with a vision of how we wanted to develop our gate company, what we wanted to offer, who we wanted to use, products we wanted to supply and install, what our company ethos will be and where we wanted to be in the future.

We quickly realised it does not come easy, yes we had experience in the industry, established relationships with suppliers, we knew where we were going to source our products, but, it was the realisation that jobs don't always land at your door, we had to work hard to prove ourselves, believe in ourselves and eventually get to that place we envisaged. Progress requires time.

As a family run business, we wanted to use local companies and locally sourced products and materials. If we are going to be offering a personal, bespoke service, we wanted to experience the same level of service with suppliers. We realised the majority of our customers prefer to use local companies and we are proud to achieve this.

Today we are looking back at all our achievements, from starting off as a Sole Trader, to building and navigating through to a Limited and VAT registered company we are today. We are grateful and immensely proud.

We are still learning, growing and being patient, our dedication and passion remains the same and we will take this in good stead moving forward.

All that is left to say is a huge THANKS...

Thank you to all our customers for your valued custom and trust. We would not be in a position we are in today without you.

Thank you to all of our suppliers and for your continued support, skills, knowledge and invaluable technical support.

Thank you to all our friends and family for your support, advice, guidance and honesty.

We are looking forward to what the next year brings!

All the best,
Steve & Zoe
