Garden buildings manufacturer and supplier Dunster House had a special visitor when HM Lord Lieutenant of Bedfordshire Helen Nellis received a tour of the company’s headquarters on Elm Farm Industrial Estate, Bedford.

Welcomed by company founders Chris Murphy and his wife Pamela, the Lord Lieutenant was taken on a guided tour of the headquarter offices, display garden and growing Humanitarian range which has recently secured a contract with leading charity Oxfam to supply superstructures and latrines for the next two years.

The tour ended in the recently acquired second factory on Caxton Road where the company manufactures uPVC windows and doors along with prototyping and testing prospective garden buildings for durability and use.

The company continues to expand and in the New Year plan to create 65 new jobs in Liverpool and Basingstoke.

Chris said: “It was lovely to meet the Lord Lieutenant and show her around our headquarters in Bedford. She was very interested in our Humanitarian range and our work with leading charity Oxfam.”
