As Leicester’s oldest awning makers we guarantee the highest quality products, and good old fashioned customer service that is second to none.

We are the quintessential family business that has evolved from one man with a motorcycle and sidecar, to a professional and modern multi product awning manufacturer and installer whilst still retaining the values that have been passed down through the generations.

We offer a very personalised local service and are very protective of our reputation, always striving to ensure our clients appreciate both our service and the quality of our products.

Established in 1887, by Mr E.A Barlow, the company flourished and in 1927 he felt he had earned a more restful time, deciding to retire and pass the business on to someone else’s capable hands.

Those capable hands belonged to Frank Coleman, and the company has been successfully run by the Coleman family ever since.

Our commitment to our clients is based on the following philosophy...

  • We strive at all times to identify and understand your needs and take time to listen to you.
  • You will always be dealt with in a courteous and caring manner.
  • We see all of our clients not as one off sales, but as lifelong ambassadors of our company.

 This service philosophy results in over 80% of our sales year on year coming from existing clients and recommendations
