Empress Fencing was established by Andrew Ireland in 1996 on the site of a previous sawmill. The business has grown to become one of the leading manufacturers and suppliers of fencing materials and timber products in the Lancashire area, supplying agricultural, commercial and domestic customers.
Over the years Andrew has been joined by several family members and long-serving staff, who work together to provide the type of service you expect from a local business – a friendly welcome, good product knowledge and access to the staff in charge of your order.
The business expanded its site in 2000 and has slowly carried out building projects over the years in order to bring the machinery and buildings up to date. The newest addition to the site is a new office and shop which has enabled us to increase our product range.
Aims & ethos
Over the years the Empress Fencing team has worked hard to establish a reputation for quality and good service. We constantly aim to provide customers with a quality product which suits their individual needs. We strive to listen and use our extensive knowledge of the timber industry and our excellent supplier links in order to serve you to our best ability.
Ribble Valley Business Awards
We are both absolutely delighted that Empress Fencing is a finalist in 4 categories at this year’s Ribble Valley Business Awards. We celebrate our 20th Anniversary next year and just to have been nominated means a great deal to us. We are a family run business and a good group of friends and so anything that tells us we might be doing a decent job is very welcome indeed!
Thank you for the prompt attention to and delivery of my recent order. We were recommended to Empress Fencing by our new neighbours and we are so pleased that we took up their recommendation.
Since my first email request for information/prices, to my visit to your premises (where all of your staff were excellent), to the young guy who was so helpful when he delivered my order your staff/firms care and attention has been fantastic!
To Andrew and everyone at Empress Fencing. Thank you for all the work you have done for us and the patience you have shown.
A very big THANK YOU to you all for the friendly welcome we received on our first visit to Empress Fencing, whilst looking for some gates for our driveway.
We would also like to say thank for the time and patience given to us whilst answering all our questions and queries and giving us some good advice at the same time. It was very nice (in this day and age) to be able to come to a friendly family run business and be able to talk to people who knew what they were talking about.
The gates are first class and exactly as good as you said they would be and should last me for years to come.
Thanks so much for the log slices for our table centre pieces at the wedding. They looked perfect and we had a fantastic day.
Got fence panels and a dog kennel here, each 5 years old and never seen any weathering. Well worth every penny. Top quality stuff.
Just to let you all know that I am very pleased with the log store. Exactly as specified and nice and sturdy.
Just a quick note to say thank you to the ladies at Empress for their invaluable advice and help with the ordering of my recent decking.
Whilst it took a little longer than usual to arrive because of supplier problems which happen and can’t be helped, the decking is top quality and your quantity advice was spot on!
First of all, I wanted to thank you for the fencing you recently delivered. It’s brilliant quality and the service we received, both from the sales and delivery staff was first class – thank you!
