Over the last 30 years, we’ve established ourselves as being true canopy pioneers.
Today, we’re a canopy company that’s widely recognised across the length and breadth of the country as the leading designer, manufacturer and installer of high quality canopies.
Where we came from
Canopies was formed in 1990 by our current managing director, Jason Eastwood’s, dad. A flyer had dropped through his door, advertising what we now call our Connekt canopy. He liked the product so much, he bought the company and formed Canopies UK.
Six years later, Jason joined the business as head of Commercial Sales, and shortly after, the company rapidly grew.
I like working for Canopies UK, as even after the longest and hardest of days, I know I’m making a difference to a lot of people. I can sit back and know it’s all for a good cause and that’s worth any number of hours or hard work.
Where we are now
One of the biggest areas of our business is commercial, which is heavily involved in providing outdoor canopies and shelters to the education and hospitality sectors.
Our Refurb and New Build side of the business is also incredibly successful too.
Where we’re heading
Our vision remains the same – for every company in the UK to install one of our canopies, and for homeowners far and wide to benefit from our canopy solutions.
We aim to achieve our vision by continuing to live by our values. They range from remembering customers deserve more than they expect and celebrating and acknowledging our achievements.
Our employees have been pivotal to our success and will undoubtedly continue to be in the future too. In fact, we all work so well together, we’re like one big family. Here’s what a couple of them have to say about working for us:
We love our job at Canopies UK because it gives us the opportunity to have a positive impact on people’s lives and make a difference. I go home knowing we have given 100%.
