Siesta Blinds – a ‘proper’ family business, began making blinds in the back bedroom of the family home in 1986. They now have a factory “Siesta House” at Whinfield Drive on Aycliffe Business Park and are happy to be in the beautiful and friendly north east of England. They have supplied blinds throughout the UK and worldwide from Cyprus to the Caribbean. “We have state of the art machinery and one of our machines cuts and bonds the vertical louvres for added strength and better looks” said Proprietor Jim Forbes. “All in all we owe our 30 years longevity to the people of Newton Aycliffe and to all of our customers past, present and future and we’d like to say a big thank you, without you it wouldn’t have been possible” added Jim.
