It is always good to put a name to a face - so here we all are.

Kaye Derwas

aka The Gaffer

My grandad started the business in the 50’s then Dad started on his own as an Agricultural Ironmonger  in 1961. I joined in 1991 after doing my degree in Aberystwyth Uni. It was supposed to be a temporary measure till I found another job, but almost three decades later I’m still here! We truly are a family business and have had to move with the times, it hasn’t been easy but we are still going and I’m really proud of taking the business forward.
