Our Chairman tried to fit another of his businesses with panelling - the high prices, poor quality and lack of choice convinced him that there was a huge gap in the market - Shore Laminates was born.
We started up at a small 9000 square foot site on Shore Road in Perth, recruiting key individuals for expert posts, making the business detail led and very hands on. A sentiment which, despite the increase in size, has never been lost.
Engineered systems were developed that made specifiers, and our competition, begin to sit up and take real notice.
Controls and operating procedures, which were key to ensuring the high standard of quality we required from the factory, were created and developed.
We moved to a 20,000 square foot building just down the road from the first site.
National sales continued to rise as we expanded our presence south of the border.
This expansion allowed us to understand the UK market and provide the foundation for national services we now offer, and have done for the last fifteen years.
Our first antibacterial laminates were launched using microban technology, making cleaning a breeze.
Our modern Acrylic panel system was launched in both the UK and Europe.
We developed and launched our innovative, top of the range glass shower panel systems
We invested further in our acrylic production plant creating the best operation in Europe.
Our new stone panel systems are released. Made with genuine stone, they have all the look and natural quality of stone or porcelain, but require no grout and are incredibly easy to fit.
