Established in November 1966, family run company, Harrison Thompson & Co. Ltd. are celebrating 50 years of trading. Started by Peter Brumwell and partners the company initially offered a limited range of protection rails in a choice of just 2 colours – White and Charcoal Grey.
Over the years Harrison Thompson has certainly evolved and now supply and install their market leading brand of Yeoman Shield wall and door protection in a choice of systems and an array of nearly 50 colours to health, education, retail and industrial buildings. Yeoman Rainguard was also created and joined the fold supplying high-quality rainwater systems into the self-build and construction sectors.
With staff numbers now nearing 70, having reached a turnover of £8 million and with continually expanding product ranges, things have certainly changed over the years – apart from the ethics that lie at the very core of the company.
“Family values have always been at the heart of our business,” explained Graeme Brumwell, Partner and director “and I believe that excellent quality of service, product and staff have been key to our company flourishing over the years and surviving the many downturns in the construction market along the way.”
Harrison Thompson will be celebrating their golden year in various ways in 2016, one being to pledge their support to employees who throughout the year are embarking on sponsored events for worthy causes.
These include a team of ladies from the accounts department running the Race for Life, a solo ½ marathon runner from the export sales department and an Area Sales Manager running a 10K race over sand dunes all in aid of cancer charities.
Harrison Thompson looks forward to another prosperous year in 2016 and would like to thank staff and customers alike for their support over the last 50 years.
We can never be sure of what the future holds but Harrison Thompson are certain that they will be “Making Business a Pleasure” for many years to come.
