A Reflection on 2017

2017 has gone by very fast for some and probably not quickly enough for others and with Christmas and New Year’s celebrations also gone, let’s have a look back on what has been an unforgettable year for us here at Plantation Shutters.

We’re always looking to grow as a company and have certainly done just that with the offerings to our clients as well as a family ourselves. We’ve had new members join the team in our office and more highly experienced fitters than ever before meaning that we’ve been able to fit more and more shutters for our clients than ever before.
