I first started in the blind industry through work experience for a company in my local area, whenever I had the chance I would work, whether it was during the summer holidays or at weekends I would go into work and learn more and more everyday, I started off by going out to help the more experienced fitters but after finishing school I was put on the assembly line.
After a couple years of learning all the different types of blinds and how to assemble them all from scratch, whilst I was learning I would still go out fitting when I was needed, whether it was holding someones ladders or just passing them the screws. I watched and studied them how they did everything so I could begin trying to do it for myself, until one day there was no fitters available in the workplace, I was sent out on my own! upon completion of the job undertaken the customer was happy with the work that I had done!
After having a glowing review from the customer about how well presented, polite and professional I was as well as doing a great job my manager soon moved me into the fitting department where I learnt how to fit everything, from roller blinds to curtains, from vertical blinds to electric pleated blinds.. I could now do it all!
8 Years later and Wombourne blinds was born, now doing work for myself it has grown from strength to strength and is only improving, now I supply and fit every variation of blind. Never hesitate to call me or e-mail me! I do not bite and would be happy to answer any questions that you may have!
I hope to hear from you soon!
