Harlyn’s History

Harlyn Enterprises started supplying and fixing ceramic tiles in October 1982, with John Leach, Chairman of Harlyn, being the sole tile fixer on all jobs.  John left school in 1967 to start an apprenticeship with British Timken and was then given a full-time job as a Design Draughtsmen. The job included altering buildings which is how John found his passion. He soon began producing plans for property extensions in his spare time.

Fast forward to 2020 and Harlyn Enterprises Ltd has a turnover of around £8M. Amazingly, they have tiled 4400 new build properties last year alone. Plus, they have 21 full-time employees, 71 vans, 70 ceramic tile fixers, and a warehouse capacity of 10,000 square feet.

“We are really proud of our history, and the 2020 figures that we have achieved, despite the impact COVID-19 has had on the construction industry, goes to show we provide some of the best service around”

Brian Doyle, Managing Director of Harlyn Enterprises LTD
