Meet the team

The people behind the scenes

The Company has a very stable, loyal and long-serving workforce with experienced
and technically astute staff holding key roles within the business.

We believe it should be right first time every time, but acknowledge this is not always the case and how you resolve issues created is as important.

Lee BlytheGroup Operations Director

We believe if we look after our customers the profit will look after itself, that customer goodwill is difficult to gain but easy to lose.

Tristam OmanGroup Sales Director

We believe if we wouldn’t have a Roundel kitchen in our own home, then we shouldn’t have them in the homes of our customers.
