A COMPANY supplying blinds and curtains has raised the bar!

Lockwood-based Swift Blinds and curtains Ltd has been enjoying online success since the launch of its e-commerce website – www.directblinds.co.uk – in early 2011.

Now the company has supplied blinds for the bar area behind the goals at the John Smith’s Stadium in Huddersfield – helping stadium chiefs meet their legal requirement to prevent people drinking from viewing the field of play while a match is under way.

Pictured with the new blinds are (from left) Swift Blinds and Curtains directors Nicolas Swift, Chris Swift and David Roebuck with Huddersfield Town ambassador Andy Booth.

Mr Roebuck, sales director, said: “We launched the site in early 2011 and it has become one of the leading sites for made-to-measure blinds in the country. It is a growing part of our business and an extremely important part of our future planning.

“We were initially surprised by the number of people who were prepared to order blinds online, measuring and installing for themselves as we have traditionally done this for customers.

“However, we have found all types of customers are going onto Direct Blinds in large numbers to buy direct and obtain the best value prices.”

Swift Blinds and Curtains also service customers requiring full measuring and installation via their showroom on Lockwood Road.

Said Mr Roebuck: “We supply the whole of the UK and blinds have also gone out to mainland Europe. Interestingly we have also had enquiries from as far away as Australia and the United States.”
