In 1993 Steve Waller started Waller Building Services after training as a quantity surveyor. Over the next few years the company grew and it was in July, 2000, when the decision was made for Waller Building Services to become a Limited company. Therefore Waller Associates Limited was set up and Waller Building Services became a trading division within that company. In 2010, an opportunity arose that dove tailed well with the existing company structure. A long established local Glazing company went into administration which produced the need for a commercial and domestic glazing supplier in the area. Their commercial glazing manger, Paul Hayward, liked the way we operated as a company and therefore a new division was formed.
