Plumbs 50 Years

Fifty years in business is a fantastic achievement for any company

Preston-based Plumbs is celebrating fifty years of covering the nation’s sofas and chairs.

The family run firm, which employs over 300 skilled craftsmen and women at its Preston headquarters, produces and designs quality made-to-measure loose sofa covers and chair covers. In recent years Plumbs has established itself as the UK’s leading reupholsterer.

From its early days as a North West market stall, Plumbs has grown into the UK’s biggest supplier of loose covers – producing over 1,000 made to measure orders every week - and has diversified its wares adding curtains and the highly skilled art of reupholstery to its range of services.

With 50 years under its belt and having covered 3 million suites to date, the family-run business has embraced five decades of home interior fashion from the vivid oranges of the 1960s, the elaborate and coordinated styles of the 1980s to the clean minimalist approach of the 1990s.

To celebrate its golden anniversary, Plumbs has created an exclusive new collection, honouring its 50 year heritage with a range of fabrics manufactured by British design houses.

Sarah Page, Managing Director of Plumbs said, “Fifty years in business is a fantastic achievement for any company. We’re incredibly proud of the growth we’ve achieved and our fantastic workforce who are like a huge extended family. We’ve got lots of exciting plans for our golden anniversary and are committed to 2010 being our most successful year ever.”
