Quality Plasterers Ltd's Story
My name is Neil Price and I am the owner of Quality Plasterers Ltd.
I am also a plasterer and work very much hands on in the business, so it's not unusual for you to see me plastering away on a daily basis.
How Did Quality Plasterers Ltd Get Started?
The truth is I really enjoy plastering. It is something I knew I wanted to do from a young age after I had seen some plasterers working on a housing development site near to where I lived.
I was amazed by how the houses came together once the plasterers had been in. Suddenly the open plan brick boxes had become homes with defined rooms. So that was it. I wanted to be a plasterer.
I am going to give my age away now!
I started my plastering training in 1985 when I left school. I trained with some excellent plasterers who were great mentors. I also got to work on some really exciting projects, which included the building of Meadowhall Shopping Centre in Sheffield. My brothers Alan and Ian are also plasterers so plastering has been an integrated part of my family life for a long time.
A Plastering Company Was Born!
In 2003 I decided to start a company which I named Meadowpark Developments Ltd. I chose this name because I thought I would try my hand at property development. I think I had watched a few too many Sarah Beeny programmes at the time, but as it turned out I didn’t like it very much. I also made no money at it as I just ended up paying someone to do the development work while I went off plastering, which sort of defeated the object of the whole idea.
So I decided to leave the property development scene to Sarah Beeny and focus on the trade I love. I kept Meadowpark Developments Ltd but traded as a specialist plastering company instead under the a trading name of Quality Plasterers.
As work increased my brothers came to join me. We also trained a few apprentices of our own over the years who are now plasterers in their own right.
I eventually realised I needed to change the company name when customers started to call us by the trade name of Quality Plasterers. It made sense to formally adopt it so as of 5 May 2017 the company name was formally changed to Quality Plasterers Ltd.
That’s Our History But Where Are We Today?
We are still very much a family run plastering business despite having other plasterers working for us now. The attention to detail my brothers and I have for our work is the central core of our business and everyone who works for us shares the same passion for their work that I have always had.
I am really proud to say that we have a excellent team of plasterers who are very good at their jobs.
The saying ‘if a job’s worth doing it’s worth doing well’ is something that all of us here at Quality Plasterers Ltd are very strong believers in and it is clearly reflected in the standard of work we produce.
