We understand that the success of just about any business is driven more by the people than the products. Obviously our tents need to be amazing but if they were delivered and erected by a bunch of rude and inexperienced people we’d be out of business very quickly.
Hence we invest a great deal of time and effort to ensure that our people are of the highest quality in every necessary aspect of our job – we demand that all our employees are great at customer service, show good problem solving initiative, are hardworking, practical, enthusiastic, happy and positive!
The business is owned by Anthony Dutton – he lives (with his wife and 3 children) 100 yards from the storage yard so he lives and breathes marquees 365 days a year.
His pet dislikes include rain, lazy employees and lack of initiative – best to avoid when any of the above are around. His ageing body is showing signs of wear and tear after erecting apparently ‘thousands’ of marquees in his career, so he’s often to be found taking an important phone call when there’s some heavy stuff to unload.
We have two full time Managers / Foremen, Anthony Cullen and Alex King / Little & Large / Laurel & Hardy.
Ant is fondly known as ‘The Rhino’ and is probably one of the leading practical problem solvers in the south west. Hobbies include fortifying his house against the repeated escape attempts of his 3 young daughters, scratchcards and finding new things to tie up with ratchet straps.
Alex King is one of the largest characters you’re likely to meet. 6’5” tall, fearless and forever talking, he’s a great man to have at your side when the chips are down.
