The Risborough Team

The Princes Risborough team

A close-knit bunch, many of the Princes Risborough staff have been working for Blanchford for over 20 years. On the trade counter, for instance, there’s Bernard Moore & Malcolm Christie whose long-term loyalty to the company shows itself through their wealth of knowledge and their ability to advise people on all matters relating to building supplies. They can even remember the days when it was behind the counter service!

In the showroom, there’s Roy Challis and Ernie Essex, who look after kitchen and bathroom sales. Roy and Ernie are skilled draughtsmen, who can draw up plans for a new kitchen or bathroom, measure up and then produce drawings within the latest software. 

The yard at Princes Risborough has 5 staff, all who have a lot of energy and are used to heavy lifting and moving goods around. The yard staff are often the first point of contact for customers in the yard and so you’ll find them welcoming and friendly.

Rounding up with the sales office, there’s Pete Stroud, whose plumbing and heating knowledge is boundless, Stuart Gray in general sales, and Neil Walters, the two sales reps. They look after existing accounts as well sourcing new products and finding new customers. 

Most of the staff at Princes Risborough, have worked together for many years and even the newer members of staff have settled in and are very much part of the team.
