The Company was founded in 1974 by Joe Manby, previously the Managing Director of a successful joinery business in Harrogate, North Yorkshire. Spotting an opportunity in the market, Joe established the company initially to service the local events industry. He was quickly joined by his sons Richard and Andrew and, by steady growth, built on a reputation of a hugely reliable and high quality personal service, the Company has gone from strength to strength to become one of the largest family-owned independent event service providers in the UK.
Initially founded as a standfitting provider, our services quickly expanded to include graphics, electrics, furniture and other event services. Based in Harrogate, the Company is still owned and managed by Joe's sons, who have full involvement in the day to day operations and the key decisions of the business. Their experience is complemented by a long-standing and loyal management team and workforce, bringing both experience and stability to each and every event.
