The face behind outdoor Blinds…

I’ve been in the business for over 20 years, starting my own company in 2001.

After firstly employing representatives to go out and quote while I managed the manufacturing side, I made the decision to change that and to rather be the face of my company.

In doing that I have had the privilege of meeting and quoting each and every client that has had blinds installed by my company.

I personally believe that the personal interaction I’ve had with my clients over the years, has brought them back. From moving to new homes, upgrading to newer products and referring me to their friends and family.

My kids often ask if I get bored doing the same thing everyday; each new day brings an opportunity to meet new people, every prospective client has a new story and a different need.
Each and every new enquiry is a challenge to me to convert to a happy client, so no, I am never bored…

In a market that is constantly changing with new products and an economy that is constantly challenging business owners, we have managed to forge ahead and grow from strength to strength and I look forward to meeting you!
