A family blinds business had its day in the sun as around 100 of its dealers gathered to celebrate the opening of its new Outdoor Living Showsite & Shading Experience Centre.
Caribbean Blinds, based at Sudbury, was launched 30 years ago and is now run by brothers Bradley and Stuart Dantzic, who took over the business from dad, Ray.
They were given factory tours and an in-depth insight into what goes into making the firm’s external shading systems.
Dealers, who enjoyed a champagne barbecue, shared ideas while enjoying a relaxed al fresco experience under one of the many Outdoor Living Pods on display. Among the guests was a leading European design firm which has partnered up with Caribbean.
Marketing co-ordinator Jahed Quddus said: “As soon as our gates where open we were overwhelmed with visitors, all of them keen to check out our new products available to them, especially the award-winning Outdoor Living Pods.
