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.

A Flower Called Eric...
I don't know much about flowers, not what they are called nor how to grow them. Don't ever ask me to look after your garden while you go away, you would probably come home to a small desert!
However, I can appreciate the appearance of flowers and here in Tintern, we are spoilt for choice as spring bursts forth everywhere. A short walk along the river bank and peering into the gardens opposite is all it takes to see a kaleidoscope of colours and varied shapes.
Luckily, I am not entirely without skills at making things grow. Take business for example. With over 40 years of experience in sales, promotion and marketing roles, I can bring that extra something to small business web sites in terms of content that helps them get found and helps them get the attention of their audience. Pop in to the websmithy, smell the flowers, drink the coffee and do your business a power of good in the process.
