HFS was established when Richard Bullivant, working in the agricultural engineering industry, was asked by a farmer friend to supply and install polypropylene wall cladding to their milking parlour. This led to similar installation requests from other farmers in the region and within a few years HFS was supporting milking parlours, dairies and other agricultural buildings nationally. Other industries were interested, and before long HFS was supplying and installing within the food retail and manufacturing, healthcare and pharmaceutical sectors.

With our teams of fully employed, highly skilled fitters and management, we proudly boast a combined total of over 150 years experience involved in the hygienic coverings, construction and shop fitting industries.

The ethos of the company has remained the same throughout the (almost) 20 year history and that is to provide customers with quality, fit for purpose products, fitted to the highest standards within prescribed timescales on EVERY installation. This has resulted in Hygienic Finishing Systems Ltd becoming one of the UK’s largest and most respected companies involved in the supply and installation of hygienic wall, floor and ceiling coverings.
