A family business

Founded in 1947 by the original four Gaiger Brothers, our company now includes managers from the third generation of Gaiger’s. As a family company steeped in tradition, we provide a very personal customer service which often hides our size. Our considerable experience of working in the Wiltshire and East Somerset regions enables us to retain our competitive edge whilst exceeding our clients expectations.
