Having worked for some of the biggest marine upholstery companies in the south for over 12 years the time came in September 2015 for me to utilise that experience and push forward with a long term goal of forming my own company Harbour upholstery.
The company's goal is to provide a straight forward one to one friendly service from start to finish at the most competitive prices and continue to build many more customers and friends within the marine industry as well as continuing to provide other high quality upholstery services.
I live in Poole Dorset where I have a small workshop and offer free collection and delivery in that area but now also working from Ringwood where I rent half of a large modern workshop alongside Hypatek marine so I am ideally located to cover all areas of Hampshire and Dorset
Highlights over the last 14+ years of how Harbour upholstery was born.
