Our history

Hillarys has been a feature in British homes since 1971 – when Tony Hillary fitted his very first made-to-measure blind in Nottingham.

In those early days, Tony was responsible for everything from advertising to selling to manufacturing to fitting and was only able to offer customers a choice of Venetian blinds … or Venetian blinds.

His hard work made sure the young enterprise became a success and soon the company was hiring staff, expanding into new areas – and extending the range of available products!

Today, more than 40 years on, we measure and fit carpets, blinds, curtains and shutters in homes up and down Britain and the Republic of Ireland. And while the scope has changed, our in-home service and personal finishing touches have stayed the same.

At our three manufacturing centres, two in Nottingham and one in Washington, we’ve invested in staff and technology, allowing us to finish every product to the highest standard. We also have a dedicated testing studio, where all new designs are developed till we’re happy they’re ready for the home.

Such commitment to quality has been recognised. We were named Nottinghamshire Company of the Year at the Nottingham Post Business Awards in 2014, as well as consistently ranking in the Top 50 Companies for Customer Service programme.

Our history and development. Our stylish range and durable products. Our in-home service and customer care. It’s why you’ll love what we do.
