The Waterworks Studio Ltd and TileWorks Studio Ltd is owned by Nigel Fryer and Bradley Nicholls. Between them they have worked as plumbers in Barrow in Furness for 50+ years between them and they decided to expand their business to include a small showroom on Walney Island in 2003.
As the business continued to thrive the Waterworks Studio Ltd moved to the Ashburner Way in 2007 and then moved to their current, larger premises on Phoenix Court in 2023. Still managing to maintain the personal approach to customer service which distinguishes it from many of its competitors.
