With over 25 years in the trade, Blindtex has developed to be an international brand delivering a local service. Our main focus is quality, and so we are proud to be the only company offering a Lifetime Warranty on all of our products.
The story starts in 1989 in a thriving UK market town, Bolton. From humble beginnings Bolton Blinds began its first operations from a market stall. The entrepreneurial nature of the business meant that within months of opening they would be making their own vertical and roller blinds and opened a factory based in an old textile mill. The stall sales continued to grow and grow which presented the natural progression to open their first premises in Bolton town centre.
With the growth of the shutter market and being early adopters of this fast-growing product, the UK’s biggest window blind store was opened in Bolton. As their reputation for delivering quality service and product continued to flourish, so did the trade enquiries.
With that the trade arm of the business “Blindtex” was born which would go on to serve the trade creating a national network of buyers. Not to rest on their laurels, the directors had international expansion in mind, resulting in their first overseas project in the UAE. Blindtex now supplies the UK, Middle East and Africa trade markets and is the biggest growing blinds company in UK and MENA regions.
