Firm gets mo­bile to show­case prod­ucts

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - ET Business Daily - By JOHN KRALEVICH

FAM­ILY firm Cas­bon Build­ing Ser­vices will aim to show it is the premier choice in Peter­bor­ough for less-abled and dis­abled fa­cil­i­ties in­stal­la­tions when it ex­hibits at The Mo­bil­ity Road­show this week.

A small lo­cal busi­ness, Cas­bon will be launch­ing its mo­bile show­room at the event, from Thurs­day to Satur­day, at the East of Eng­land Show­ground, in Al­wal­ton.

The mo­bile show­room al­lows peo­ple – usu­ally avail­able by ap­point­ment – to view ex­am­ples of prod­ucts to suit their needs, in­clud­ing wet rooms, doors, floor­ing and basins.

The firm also in­stalls ramps and rails, and builds ground-floor ex­ten­sions to house level-ac­cess show­ers.

“Our ex­pe­ri­ence and care has led to us be­ing a highly-re­garded busi­ness in this field,” said owner Char­lie Cas­bon, who set up the busi­ness 13 years ago, the last six years based at First Drove, Fen­gate, Peter­bor­ough.

Mr Cas­bon, an ex-brick­layer and job­bing builder, started out spe­cial­is­ing in build­ing main­te­nance for hous­ing as­so­ci­a­tions as well as pri­vate work.

About four years ago, the mo­bil­ity work “took off” through lo­cal author­ity grants, grow­ing to the point where the firm was in­stalling about 100 level-ac­cess shower rooms each year.

The busi­ness ex­panded and has led to the launch of the mo­bile show­room.

“We do grants work, which can be up­graded, and projects for the gen­eral pub­lic as well,” said Mr Cas­bon.

“We have the ex­per­tise to excel, to be num­ber one in the area in our field.”

Cas­bon em­ploys two teams of fit­ters and of­fers a “first-rate” pack­age.

Care is at the heart of its ethos, pro­vid­ing an in­di­vid­ual, per­sonal ser­vice, and which Mr Cas­bon over­sees from start to fin­ish.

He is the first point of con­tact; he sur­veys the site, dis­cusses of the ex­tent of the work, pro­vides a firm start and fin­ish date, and over­sees the job car­ried by his po­lite and car­ing staff.

On com­ple­tion, Cas­bon gives a one-year guar­an­tee on the works, then gives the cus­tomer Mr Cas­bon’s mo­bile phone num­ber to “per­son­ally as­sure ef­fi­cient af­ter­care.”

Ma­jor UK sup­pli­ers, such as Im­pey UK Ltd, AKW Medi-care and Con­tour, have been sup­port­ive of the mo­bile show­room.
