About Us

WHO WE ARE

Frederick J French founded the company in 1895. After his death in 1947 the company was sold to the surviving directors and since that time has been owned and managed by “hands-on” directors working full-time in the business and incorporating the values of a family firm.

We believe in forming long-term relationships with our clients based on the principles of co-operation and teamwork. We believe in providing a quality product and, on a more practical level, we employ a core of highly skilled craftsmen. We train our apprentices to our own high standards.

We aim to provide a complete service to our clients by fulfilling their Maintenance, New Build, Design and Build, Heritage and Refurbishment needs. Our contracts range in value from a few hundred pounds to a million.

Our vision for the future is one of controlled expansion, with increased professionalism, in ever-closer co-operation with our clients, whilst maintaining our tradition of quality and reliability.
