Essex Blinds & Shutters in Romford, Essex, was formed in 1960 by the former owners. The company secured a large clientele, based upon a reliable, efficient service established around their experience. The company grew, not in size, but in their experience and good client base.
The present owner, Mr D.Cleverley, took over the company in 1992, having started in the trade himself in 1962, adding
his experience in the blind and shutter industry.
At this point the company was probably more widely known for the manufacture and installation of roller shutters rather than blinds and awnings, which in the main are seasonal. With a wider product knowledge, the company was able to move forward into a new era.
The company has an advantage over more recently formed companies, being able to carry out work to a high standard on the older traditional blinds and awnings as well as the modern systems produced today.
The company is well known to English Heritage as well as throughout the trade for these attributes.
