Shire have been producing garden buildings since 1981. Initially we utilised the skill our workforce possessed when we stopped producing Yachts and started to make Garden Buildings. We have consistently expanded over the years, skills have been passed on and our factories and warehouses now occupy some 20 acres. We have invested in the best equipment and have facilities that include a planing mill, self-contained joinery production, undercover timber store and large warehouses that can hold some 20,000 buildings in stock.
All of our products are manufactured in the United Kingdom at two sites, one in Wisbech, the other 10 miles away in Sutton Bridge. Shire manufactures a wide choice of products – Sheds, Summerhouses, Playhouses, Log Cabins, Pet houses, Deck kits and now Eco Lodges. What do we rebrand to sell? Absolutely nothing. We manufacture all Shire products ourselves and so are able to produce bespoke buildings to suit individual requirements, whether this is a special size or height, repositioning of doors and windows or a totally unique building.
QUALITY WITHOUT COMPROMISE
All Shire buildings are produced to the highest standards using quality materials from sustainable sources. Our timber is imported direct from Russia and Scandinavia it is slow grown and only the best grades are used. We pride ourselves on good value for money products and have products suitable for every budget.
Our levels of service are big company ideals with small company caring and our team is small and close knit enough to be able to follow through.
We don’t believe in lots of jargon and corporate wording, all we will say is that we care hugely and do our best – all the time. Occasionally things go wrong – we will correct, learn and improve. No one is perfect and we don’t pretend we are – but we will ensure that anything that does go wrong is fixed, quickly.
we are glad to say that hundreds of thousands of customers have been very happy with Shire products and service.
