INDUSTRY LEADER HOWE GREEN CELEBRATES 30 YEARS

As economic pressures continue to take their toll on businesses across every sector, UK manufacturer Howe Green celebrates its 30th year, citing the ability to adapt to change as vital for all companies wanting to survive.
An industry leading manufacturer of access covers for floors, walls and ceilings, Howe Green was founded by Antony Centa and wife Angela in 1983 with their son Peter, the firm's only employee. The company focused on selling metal fabricated access covers to Terrazzo flooring companies in its formative years. This was a market Antony knew well, having gained valuable industry experience with the St. James Tile Co., a manufacturer and installer of Terrazzo tiles.

the NAHB International Builders’ Show Orlando

The 750 Series access cover was Howe Green's first product. It was designed and developed specifically to meet the needs of the supermarket sector; a core market for Terrazzo flooring. A high quality, medium duty, aluminium access cover, it provided a reliable method of accessing concealed under floor services in highly trafficked areas where a heavier loading was needed.

Three decades later, and part of a much bigger product portfolio, the 7500 Series access cover, successor to the original 750 Series product, is still one of Howe Green's top performers. Now manufactured in stainless steel as well as in aluminium, it is the ideal access solution for a wide range of applications. These have included terminals for Heathrow's T5 and London's first urban cable car, the Cutty Sark and Kings Cross Station, to name just a few. A specially adapted 7500 Series access cover can also be found above a time capsule buried deep underground at Old Trafford, commemorating 100 years of one of the most famous football stadiums in the world.

the NAHB International Builders’ Show OrlandoAntony Centa passed the mantel to his four sons in 2003 and with it the firm's ethos – that trust is the foundation of any relationship, that Howe Green can be relied upon to deliver and respond to customer requirements and to offer a truly flexible service.

"It's at times like this, when confronted with economic uncertainty, that a company faces its toughest tests,"

says Richard Centa, Howe Green's Sales and Marketing Director.

"We are still a family-run business and able to be flexible and responsive. We can offer non-standard sizes and specifications alongside our core ranges, typically with no premium to pay or prohibitive time implications. Our access panels are made to meet clients' exact specifications and we provide the technical support and advice they need to arrive at the best possible solution for their project. Product development is a continual process here. This has undoubtedly given us a competitive edge over the last 30 years and gives us confidence and optimism for the future."
