Staying in touch with our manufacturers is important to us at Englishmans Castle.
We attend regular factory visits to gain a deeper understanding of our supplier’s products and processes. We always enjoy visiting the Ercol factory in Princesses Risborough and constantly amazed by the state of the art factory and the skills developed by the many craftsmen Ercol employ.
