Originally Dresser was formed in the early 1980s & was conceived by one of the current directors in his early 20s & wanting to build his first house he searched high & low to buy some specialist period mouldings, unable to find any company in the market able to supply his requirement he decided to start his own company, supplying architectural & specialist curved mouldings. Dresser has come along way from its humble conception in the back streets of Wigan. The company having established its routes & identity started to commend respect within the specialist Architectural market & with Dresser out growing its humble beginnings in Wigan moved to a new purpose build site in Horwich, (Bolton) in the late 1980s. From the new site dresser range of products started to be specified nationwide with Architects, specifies & especially the pub contractors, these were the boom times for Dresser.
During 2009 the Dresser business split & a new company was formed from its present location in Rochdale. The new company recruited a couple of new directors who having successfully run Timbmet’s UK manufacturing site embarked on taking on the old business, this was a master stoke as it enabled the business to re-launch with existing ideas but also bring on new skills along with a much larger site to include assembly line facilities, a vacuum coating paint line along with all of the traditional products associated with Dresser Mouldings. It is clear the changes have helped dresser refocus & expand its core business but at the same time make the necessary changes to take dresser forward focusing in on people & technology skills & at the same time offer a much wider service to its core product range.
