Lance Gracie took over the business in 2013 with one textile fabricator and himself quoting, steel fabricating and installing.
Whilst overseeing the running of the business he was also taking pre sales enquiries, was out quoting, fabricating and installing the finished product. It became apparent very quickly with the fast growth of the business that he needed to move Making Shade to larger premises and recruit more staff. And with that the business and team have grown to the size it is today.
Making Shade is basically made up of two separate arms under the one roof.
We have our Commercial & Residential shade solutions arm where one of our sales team will come out to you. They will discuss options within your budget, give advice and suggest solutions. You have 30 days to consider the quote and if accepted we will then manufacture and install your product(s).
Our other range of products sit under our Motorhome side of the business. This is our very popular and successful Shademaker Awning & accessories. This part of the business is where we manufacture and assemble our Shademaker Awning and we can either fit the Awning to your Motorhome, Caravan or horse float in our workshop OR send you a kitset version with a set of instructions.
