Tony Enticknap, Style’s Finance Director and Co-Founder, Retires

Its not often we use our newsletter to focus on individuals, however Tony Enticknap who co-founded Style back in 1999, and has been finance director ever since, has decided to retire. He leaves Style in October.

Tony started Style Partitions 15 years ago with Julian Sargent, who remains Style’s group managing director. In Tony’s capacity as finance director, Style quickly became the UK market leader in movable partitioning walls and now serves architects, specifiers, contractors and end-user clients through its five regional offices. The company is also celebrating the launch of a new London showroom, set to become the UK’s most innovative centre for interior fit outs.

“It is hard to describe in a few words the incredible role that Tony has played since we first opened our doors for business,” said Julian Sargent.

“He has carefully nurtured Style into a company that delivers quality in everything it does, offers an outstanding combination of people, products and processes and, thanks to his incredibly astute financial management, he has steered us through the highs and lows of a changing economy, including one of the worst global recessions many of us have ever experienced, making sure we have always remained financially robust.

“On a professional note, he couldn’t leave our business in better shape for its next phase of growth, and on a personal note I couldn’t have worked with a better business partner and friend.”

As a keen wildlife photographer, Tony plans to travel the world with his wife visiting many of the places he always dreamed of seeing. On behalf of everyone at Style, we wish him a very happy retirement.

Vertically Rising Blinds – Simple but Brilliant!

Traditional blinds could be a thing of the past with a simple, but brilliant, new product being launched by Style.

DORMA’s Moveo Glass partitioning wall can now be fitted with integrated blinds that rise from the bottom, rather than drop from the top, which means privacy can be provided whilst retaining space above eyelevel for light.

“When you think about it, it seems obvious that blinds are better lifting upwards from the floor, rather than down from the ceiling,” said Andy Gibson, Style’s director for the North.

“By raising the blinds just above head height means no-one can see into a room, but light can still come in from the top. It’s one of those simple ideas that’s really very clever!”

Style is the exclusive UK partner to DORMA, Skyfold and SWG which means the company offers an extensive portfolio of moveable wall solutions in a variety of finishes.

Demand for glass partitions with integrated blinds comes from a diverse range of sectors, offering discretion to patients in the health sector, removing distractions in schools and enabling companies to hold meetings in privacy when required.

“I can see vertically rising blinds quickly replacing traditional ones,” said Andy, “as it’s clearly the most practical way to operate them. It goes to show that sometimes the simplest ideas are the best!”
