April 2013 saw the appointment of a new Chairman, John Alston, to drive the company forward into a new era of manufacturing success. John, who understands what it takes to lead a manufacturing business, is also Chairman of his family owned business Alstons. One of the largest family owned manufacturers in the UK, with an enviable reputation, which has been producing great British made furniture since 1951. John understands the importance of high standards of quality and service which is needed in a competitive manufacturing market to set your business above the competition. With his background and knowledge, the appointment of John is extremely exciting for this Suffolk based precast concrete manufacturer and his impact is greatly anticipated.
