Established in 1981, Centre Service Ltd
began as a home-run husband and wife team, offering a machinery
maintenance service to the garment finishing sector.
The company's expansion began in 1987 when Pantex
of Holland approached Managing Director Richard Brown with an agency
offer. Further growth came in 1993 when Centre Service Ltd became
an agent for Camptel of Italy.
This enabled the company to offer an extensive range of machinery
in addition to the long established maintenance service.
Although still very much a family concern the
company has long outgrown its modest beginnings, and now occupies
a three-storey building in the centre of Castleford. One thing that
has never changed, however, is the strong emphasis on customer care.
Centre Service Ltd has always recognised it's customers as individual,
with individual needs.
It is this ability and willingness to relate
to the customer that has given Centre Service an impressive reputation
for providing solutions to those with finishing problems. Indeed,
Centre Service Ltd's development of The Castleford System of garment
finishing orginated as a solution to one customer's problem, and
has now progressed into a versatile pressing system, capable of
finishing a wide range of garments.
