Tell us about your business
We make custom strings for musical instruments; mainly for guitars, but also other steel-string instruments.
How did you start this business?
I didn’t. It was started by a man called Malcolm Newton in the mid-1980s. I joined in 2000, falling into the job straight out of college. When Malcolm decided to retire in 2015, he offered me the chance to take over.
