David Lester started Elite Blinds in February 2002 as a made to measure blind supplier and installer, mostly working in the domestic market fitting predominantly roller, vertical and venetian blinds.
Together with Katie Lester, we now supply and fit all types of interior blinds and shutters with the knowledge and expertise gained from our years in the business. We take great care to ensure each customer has the knowledge and advice they need to decide which product is best for their situation.
David started Elite Blinds in 2002 and has enjoyed growing the business from small beginnings. He loves a challenge, so conservatory roofs, shaped or bi-fold shutters and motorised blinds are his forte. In his spare time David loves to go sailing or cycling.
Katie joined Elite Blinds a few years later and spends most of her time keeping the office running smoothly. When not at work she enjoys walking the dog and cycling.
