Handles4Doors is a family-run business situated just outside Farnham in the rolling fields of the Surrey countryside. The company is run by husband and wife team Graham and Suzanne Faulkner, who after 30 years in the workforce decided it was now or never if they wanted to be independent and fulfil their dream of running their own business. With Graham’s background in engineering and sales and Suzanne’s experience of finance and admin, they went ahead and formed Acorn Ironmongery Ltd in March 2002 to sell architectural ironmongery to the trade and retail market.
Within 12 months two former colleagues had joined them and together they quadrupled turnover in 4 ½ years of trading. It became apparent to Graham and Suzanne that there was a growing need for a good retail service as many customers commented that the choice of window and door furniture in the big DIY sheds was limited and, quite frankly, pretty awful. It was this realisation that inspired Acorn to develop a website to reach out to a larger client base. The range of door handles, window furniture and other ironmongery on the market is so vast that it was felt that the only way to present the products in this retail sector was via an ordered, practical and accessible e-commerce website. Thus www.handles4doors.co.uk was born.
