It has been another exciting and busy year for Cladding Coatings. 2017 wasn’t just a great year for business but it was also a big milestone for us, as we reached our 10th year at Cladding Coatings. Mike and father Mick set up the company back in 2007, back then we were a small Manchester based company carrying out but a few refurbishment services, we were tiny compared to the nationwide thriving industry leaders we are proud to be today. Over our ten years, we have dominated the market with our skills, experience, innovation and the quality of our services, positioning us at the forefront of the building maintenance and refurbishment sector.
This past year has been one of our most notable to date, we attended awards ceremonies where we had been shortlisted, we exhibited at a number of shows and exhibitions, we introduced new services and gain some very well-known new clients! Here is a look back at our 2017, a year to remember.
