Toby is one of our sales representatives (the best so he tells us!). He worked in the workshop for 12 months to make sure he had a thorough knowledge of our product/process before he went into sales. You’ll often find him in London discussing projects with clients, where his renowned fashion flair comes to the fore.
Natalie Routledge
Natalie RoutledgeAdmin

Ralph Clarke
Ralph ClarkeHead of Security
Ralph – The team mascot. Ralph, is Anthony’s German Shepherd who he brings to work most days. He spends his days lounging on the front decking and checking up on projects in the workshop. It isn’t unusual for Ralph to take himself on a walk to see the other neighbouring businesses!

WORKSHOP

Anka has a well established team of artisans with a variety of interests outside work, from Bath Rugby and West Ham FC supporters, local rugby players to Duncan Cormack, Head of R & D, who has the most dangerous hobby.  He has several scars which bear witness to the violence of the battle reconstructions that occupy his weekends.
