How the family business has evolved and grown through the decades
Established by David Plum in 1963, initially as a landscape gardening business, David Plum & Co has successfully operated from the same rural location, just outside Preston, for over 50 years.

Through his landscaping work, David began dealing in antique garden furniture and ornaments. This led to an opportunity to buy interiors from pubs being demolished and the early 1970’s saw the business move to selling architectural salvage and pub paraphernalia for export to North America.
The home market grew in the 1980’s with the advent of the LCV (Low Cost Victoriana) pub, ‘fun pubs’ and other popular themes. The company expanded with these trends and established a customer base including, among others, architects, interior designers, contractors and publicans.
Exports also grew and David Plum & Co found itself supplying pub décor worldwide.

At this time the business became a family affair with David’s wife Hazel and all five of their children becoming involved.
In more recent years the company has expanded to include sales and prop hire to film, television and theatre production companies and props for visual merchandising to international companies such as Ralph Lauren, Brooks Brothers and so on.

The family business has evolved and grown through the decades and despite the sad loss of David in 2007, has continued to flourish, as Plum and Co, under the guidance of his daughter Jane and son Simon.
