Our
Story

From 1977 to present day…

1977 – Westgate founded by Derrick Gates. The initial business was Westgate Solar Control which operated from the family home in Stafford, installing window film products for local businesses.  

1980 – Westgate decided to purchase their first business premise and in 1981 branch out into supplying and installing industrial partitioning (Flexiwall and Flexiscreen being the main products) and ‘Westgate Factory Dividers’ was born.

1987 – After continued growth Westgate moved in to larger premises.

1992 – Only five years later and in order to sustain continued growth of the business moved to larger premises again. During this period, the partners wanted to support an initiative to set up charitable schools, the new site offered sufficient space to enable this.

2005 – The third division of the company, ‘Westgate Site Segregation’, was launched in 2005 along with the very first Hoardfast internal temporary partitioning/hoarding range.

2007 – Again, another move is required into larger premises! This time to where Westgate reside today on Verulam Road.

2010 – Westgate had sourced all Flexistrip and certain other industrial door products via a separate company, Shawdoor Sales. In 2010 the Shawdoor Sales brand was bought by Westgate Group and merged in to the Westgate Factory Divider division.

2014 – In November 2014, the opportunity arose to partner with another company, Lockmetal, who supply rainwater goods and specialist cladding. While remaining a separate financial entity, the management decided that both companies could benefit from co-directorship and joined together under the stronger Westgate Group brand.

2018 – After a period of market research it was decided that the three seperate divisions; Westgate Solar Control, Factory Dividers and Site Segregation would merge to become Westgate, providing a more collaborative approach to delivering information to our new and existing customers and strengthening the consistency of the brand.
