Our reputation is built on the amazing results we have been able to achieve at the highest end of the market, and we are proud to provide our services to numerous clients from all corners of the globe. From our private showroom in Derbyshire, we have worked hard to establish a true global reach, with overseas markets extending from the USA to New Zealand. Our overseas sales have grown from £14.5m to £33.3m, which represents an astonishing overall growth of 130 per cent.’
