Are you a UK based upholsterer or loose cover maker looking to increase your work flow? Here at Plumbs, we know that working with another company is very much a two-way partnership. We also understand the hours of hard work that you have put into building your business, which is why we only offer work to fill your spare capacity. This allows us to utilise your skills and passion for craft, whilst you enjoy a steady stream of domestic furniture orders – all from within a geographical location that you are happy to cover and at a rate that suits you.
It’s up to you to decide how best to fit in your appointments around your own work. All we ask is that you complete each order within its specified due date.
