Montgomery Tomlinson Limited

It is very bad news to hear that Montgomery Tomlinson Limited has gone into receivership.  This company was started in 1928.

Paul Pollard-Fraser, MD of Deva blinds Ltd said “I am very sorry to hear that a company that has been trading for so many years has gone into receivership.  It will be a great shock to over 500 people that were employed by them.”

“I think it goes to prove that if you do not move with the times, your business will not be there.  Blinds have taken over from curtains and as a business you can not rest on your laurels.”

“At Deva blinds we do 90% blinds now and 10% curtains, things getting busier and busier.”


Deva blinds have a new fitter.

We are pleased to announce that Graham has joined us a new fitter to enhance the fitting of blinds, shutters and also curtains.

Graham used to work for a retail chain fitting blinds and curtains, so he brings a good set of skills.

Paul Pollard-Fraser, owner of Deva blinds said, “Graham is a very customer focused person, who will get the job done. He understands that getting the job done first time with the minimum amount of disruption is what the customers of Deva blinds want.”

“I am very pleased that Graham is onboard and he will help the growth of Deva blinds.”

Deva blinds continue to grow by offering customers quality blinds, shutters and curtains at a sensible price.  No 50% off sales that never end or 4 blinds for £99 that are only available in lime green.

Deva blinds to manufacture blinds

Deva blinds manufacturing

After previously buying blinds from various factories, Deva blinds is about to start manufacturing its customers blinds.

Paul Pollard-Fraser, owner of Deva blinds said “It is often very frustrating dealing with different suppliers, delivery dates are often missed, quality varies between suppliers and often certain components are not suitable in a product range.”

“I recently started using a new supplier for my roller blinds.  The fabrics were lovely and my first customer commented on how modern and “designer” they were.  I was pleased and looked forward to fitting them for her.  When the blinds arrived, the fabrics looked lovely, but were let down by inferior fittings.  By manufacturing our blinds ourselves, we will be able to use the designer fabrics, but source quality fittings and produce the kind of blind that our customers expect.”

“By manufacturing ourselves not only will we be able to use the best fabrics and fittings, but we will also be able to update things quickly.”

“We will also be in greater charge of lead times, which will result in a better service to our customers.”

“Deva blinds will also offer blinds to the trade, offering quality blinds at a sensible price.”

Manufacturing will be headed by May Pollard-Fraser

After a meeting with my main supplier this week, I was told that I am now one of their biggest accounts.
