A TRULY THIRD GENERATION FAMILY COMPANY
Abbey Upholstery was founded in 1976 by a then young, married couple – Tom & Mary Burke, literally in the cellar of their first home.Almost immediately, Tom’s father, John Burke, who took early retirement at 58 years of age. joined the Company to help his son and daughter-in-law on a supposed part-time basis. This family business immediately took off to the extent that John’s supposedly part-time retirement job became full time and lasted for the next 25 years. So it was not till 2001 that John finally retired at the age of 87. His influence and values are still influential in the Company to this day.
In 1998 Paul Burke, on founding his own Website Design Company in Gloucester, became the Company’s internet consultant and website designer – a relationship that still continues successfully to this day, even though interactive media is now his speciality.
The Internet and Abbey Upholstery.
In 1998 Paul Burke (son of Tom and Mary – lately out of University) started his own website design business.
This was in the very early of the internet. His father ( as ever his eye on the future) gave him a project – to design a website for Abbey Upholstery Leeds.
We immediately started getting a trickle of enquiries from small repairs of a broken castor from Liverpool to fully reupholstering a large number of sofas and chairs in the famous Queens Hotel in Leeds City Centre.
The Company was off again expanding into another area of marketing. Soon we developed various speciality websites but all furniture related:-
www.furnitrewebstore.co.uk for example, supplying beds and new sofas with customers not just in West Yorkshire and the U.K. but from all over the world.
