A Countryside Business
At Geoffrey Parker we’re proud that our workshops are based on the same family land where the business began in 1958; Geoffrey started his leatherwork in the Essex countryside where he enjoyed long walks and the wildlife around him.
Our staff are all employed from the local area, many started with us as apprentices taking over from those who have retired after working with Geoffrey from the start.
Supporting Local Businesses
We’ve tried hard to ensure our raw materials are also sourced from UK based businesses where possible. As a business, we like to support other local companies and understand the quality which comes with the British name. Unfortunately, some materials inevitably have to come from abroad; we’re fortunate enough not to have a population of watersnakes and alligators.
Visiting Our English Workshops
One of the great benefits of being based in such a wonderful location; is the ability to welcome our customers to our showrooms. We’re always more than happy to arrange meetings here in Essex; we can offer a tour of our workshops where you can see our staff hard at work before choosing your game and colours in person.
