In 1981, Jim Beardsworth established the company in its original form, with a workshop on Douglas Road in Preston and running the office from home. Our company’s ethos of maintaining the highest standards were clearly established from the beginning and have led to our reputation in Preston as the most trusted for high-quality commercial developments.
Even in the beginnings of the company, it was clear early on that it would be a family business which we could develop with commitment and dedication. Paul Beardsworth, Jim’s son, joined the company in 1985 with another son, Andrew, joining a few years later in 1991. Both brought fresh ideas, different skills and the ability to advance the company, enabling larger and multiple projects to become achievable.
There was another addition to the company in 2000 when Tony, Jim’s son-in-law, joined. The family ethos is something which we uphold as it means familiarity with our clients, understanding of the visions for projects and commitment to ensuring the highest standards of quality in all stages of a project.
We moved a short distance to Lytham Road, our current offices and workshop, in 1999 and in 2012, the company became Limited, with Jim, Paul, Andrew and Tony all becoming Directors, demonstrating their continuing dedication and commitment to the company.
