Stuart Dantzic took the reins of the com­pany started by his par­ents, along with his brother Brad, from 1st Jan­uary 2017, hav­ing both been in­volved in the busi­ness for well over a decade. With an in depth un­der­stand­ing of the in­dus­try and op­por­tu­ni­ties it pre­sented, Stuart had a clear vision for the fu­ture and how to grow the com­pany which in­volved im­ple­ment­ing strate­gic in­vest­ment in both ma­chin­ery and per­son­nel devel­op­ment to en­hance ex­act­ing qual­ity and ef­fi­ciency, along with a clever digital and in print mar­ket­ing strat­egy to in­crease brand and prod­uct aware­ness.

By the end of 2018, the com­pany had seen ex­traor­di­nary growth of

more than 60%, with the com­pany ex­pected to more than dou­ble its turnover by the end of this year.

Stuart com­ments “it’s a great ac­co­lade to re­ceive the crown of Young Busi­ness Per­son of the Year, how­ever, none of this would have been pos­si­ble with­out my brother, Brad, who man­ages all op­er­a­tions of the com­pany on a day to day ba­sis and the amaz­ing team we have who ev­ery day design, man­u­fac­ture and in­stall top qual­ity ex­ter­nal shad­ing sys­tems, that stand the test of time, with qual­ity and at­ten­tion to de­tail at the fore­front of ev­ery­thing they do. De­spite our sig­nif­i­cant growth, the com­pany’s foun­da­tions re­main the same as when my par­ents founded the com­pany; to pro­vide in­no­va­tive ex­ter­nal shad­ing sys­tems that de­liver gen­uine lifestyle en­hanc­ing ben­e­fits, cou­pled with premium qual­ity, stylish design, ex­act­ing ser­vice, value for money and above all else ex­pert knowl­edge and ad­vice to en­able clients to make an in­formed de­ci­sion”.
