The team have all been fantastic since I joined and clients have been extremely positive. Visiting the impressive Gainsborough bath manufacturing plant for the first time was a memorable experience."

I had previously seen several bathroom projects completed by non-specialist builders which lacked quality and precision. We are about providing durable, quality solutions that deliver sustainable care, CQC hygiene excellence and utmost safety – an offering I am proud to showcase.
