Meet the Directors

Anthony Brettell – Technical Director
Paul Brettell – Operations Director

Third generation owners and brothers Anthony and Paul Brettell began designing and making gates, railings and handrails for local residential customers in 1990.  Starting with a small collection of designs, demand rapidly grew so new styles were designed and added to the catalogue. Soon after, housing developers and professional tradespeople requested Juliette Balconies (as well as wrought iron style gates and railings) and so these too were added to the product range. The rapid increase in demand for our wrought iron style products prompted us to launch our mail order website in 2007.  We have continued to grow our sales surely and steadily and we sell around the UK and beyond.

More About Our Technical Advice Service

Unlike many of our competitors our directors offer a full technical advice service for customers including how to measure for, order and fit their ironworks.  Both Paul and Anthony have many years hands on experience measuring for, manufacturing and installing wrought iron gates and railings.  Examples of those we have helped include customers with unconventional site layouts, requirements for specially curved, angled and cut-out railings to fit around trees, and ironworks to fit uneven walls and openings.

We continue to offer our superior quality galvanized flat pack coal bunkers and corn/storage bins and we sell our traditional tin baths via our retailer Mower Magic who offer a mail order service.
