Mayor visits our Bedford branch!

Mayor Visit Dunster House

Our Bedford branch, and Head Office, received a special visit yesterday from Dave Hodgson, the Mayor of Bedford.

The Mayor’s visit was to shed some light onto the company. Especially after almost 19 years in operation within the Bedfordshire area. Of course this was the perfect opportunity for us to show off what  we do and our exciting new purchase!

Company founders Chris and Pam Murphy were on hand to give the Mayor a guided tour of the site. Along with their son and Director, Andrew Murphy, and Head of Operations, Mike Hart-King.

The tour took the Mayor through the display garden in Bedford where Chris Murphy talked him through the various ranges displayed, from our log cabins and wooden climbing frames to greenhouses and pressure treated sheds. Chris also took the Mayor around the new prototype of the Lienne MK2 Garden Office which is currently being tested in the Bedford  display garden.

The tour included the Bedford factory which manufactures DIY uPVC windows and doors, as well as the carpentry and prototyping stations which build and test garden building designs for durability and use.

To end the tour, the Mayor of Bedford was shown around the recently acquired second factory on Caxton Road.

The new factory stands on a 3.98 acre plot of land, allowing for the
company to continue to grow.

The Mayor of Bedford received training to become a member of the Dunster House Sales Team.

Talking of his visit to Dunster House the Mayor of Bedford Borough, Dave Hodgson, said: “It’s always interesting to meet local businesses and hear from them what it is like on the frontline. Dunster House has become a real success story in the Borough having seen massive growth in the last 10 years and yet remains a family owned business now employing over 150 people.  It was great to meet everybody involved and see the huge diverse range of products that are produced there. There is clearly a shed for every occasion as well as sheds for occasions you hadn’t even thought of!”



Alex Murphy

Hello, I’m Alex, I love rabbits… and cars, erm, enjoy designing, GSOH, hang on this isn’t a personals ad, also GSOH is debatable, I have a sense of humour, but is it good? My son means the world to me as do my family whom I am lucky to work with, Mummy, Daddy and Baby Brother, except Baby Brother’s in his 30’s and an inch taller than I and as I too am hardly a child ‘Mummy’ and ‘Daddy’ are terms of endearment to them. I haven’t gone ‘ga ga’ in quite some time, though again some may debate this. When I say I love rabbits I don’t mean in a creepy way but as children, at time of writing I have 7, I actually have 2 sat next to me in my office as we’ll be going to the vet for a check up later. All of my rabbits have a sob story of one kind or another and I love mangling my home to make it more rabbit friendly, they all have large indoor and outdoor spaces to run and jump in and I keep extending their accommodation which my wife would prefer I stop. I love designing, I never fail to have a project on the go (or frequently 3 or 4 meaning boxes and tools all over the house), my rabbit accommodation is intricate, I’ve pulled down and built walls in my house and this is why I love my job where I get to design for other people. I constantly review the market and ensure that we always sell the best product for the price. My extremely clever brother and father do so as well, meaning you always get the best available, designed in the UK FOR the UK! Find Alex Murphy on: Google+
