THE best recommendation is by word of mouth for Mallard Fencing who secure a large percentage of their work this way.
In the six years since it was formed by Warren Mallard, the business has grown year-on-year at its premises at Warble Wharf, Globe Lane Industrial Estate, Broadway, Hyde.
The business purchases top-quality wood from a timber merchant and produces a wide selection of fencing and panels as well as also supplying concrete posts. They can also supply sheds.
Most of the work is for home owners within Tameside, but they occasionally receive orders from further afield with Portsmouth and Wales among far-flung destinations for their fencing.
It is very much a family firm with Warren’s mother June and her husband Philip also heavily involved, with a total of four people employed.
Business is also all-year round with home owners carrying out improvements during the summer.
Bad winter weather does have its benefits as Mallard Fencing are often required to repair storm-damaged fencing.
June explained: “If there is a storm and panels are blown out, we receive many calls.
“Gardens often have to be secure for children and dogs so we are kept busy when the weather is bad.”
