Although the county of Gwent was disbanded in 1996, it remains one of the preserved counties of Wales and the name is still used by emergency services, e.g. Gwent Police and Gwent Ambulance Service. It also lives on in the name of the Royal Gwent Hospital, Coleg Gwent and other public places.
Named after the Kingdom of Gwent, historically placed in and around Monmouthshire, the name of Gwent is inextricably embedded in Welsh history.
Gwent is the most heavily populated of the preserved counties of Wales with over half a million inhabitants. The administrative bodies that replaced Gwent Unitary Authority are Blaenau Gwent County Borough, Caerphilly County Borough, Monmouthshire, The City of Newport and Torfaen County Borough.
With the great population density, much of our work on domestic garage roller doors is concentrated in Gwent. With so much development going on in Newport, with new builds and housing developments springing up, there is great demand for high security, easy to operate, motorised garage doors with installation taking place at the earliest stage. We also find a very strong market for replacement doors as the more mature properties in the town being updated and renovated. Owners find the convenience of our remote control doors a great boon, particularly when the weather gets inclement.
Our manufacturing base is also within the preserved county of Gwent, being in the heart of Monmouthshire, so many customers prefer to buy locally for many practical reasons. Being on the doorstep makes it easy to scehdule installations accurately and maintain our enviable reputation for punctuality and efficiency.

Welcome to Fabtastic Friday
Friday is derived from a translation of the Latin 'Veneris Dies', the day of the planet Venus. Venus was the goddess of love and today is a great day to love your business.
Of course we all know the old joke about Robinson Crusoe being the only man who got all his work done by Friday but it isn't necessarily true. The key lies in defining exactly what 'all your work' is. Disappointment is only when reality is not equal to expectation so if your expectation is not achievable, disappointment is the only possible outcome.
By setting realistic goals and learning to stop once they are achieved can bring much more pleasing results. You never know, you may achieve what you set out to achieve before the end of Friday. How good will that feel?
One of the most important things that Gina Gardiner taught me was to identify the difference between what was important and what was urgent. There is always a temptation to give the squeakiest wheel the most grease at the expense of jobs that can make a big difference in your business.
