Raymond Gulliver, our Chairman, founded Gulliver Timber Treatments in 1971. After graduating in Forestry at Edinburgh University, he joined W. R. Crow and was responsible for setting up their Woodworm and Dry Rot Treatment Service in 1958. When Crows were taken over by Protim Services, Ray Gulliver formed Gulliver Timber Treatments.
GTT are long standing members of the Property Care Association (formerly BWPDA). Ray served on its Remedial Treatment Committee and also on the Council of this Association. He was also a founder member of the Guarantee Protection Insurance Ltd. For a one-off fee, GPI provide an insured Back-up Guarantee to safeguard members' own Guarantees in the unlikely event of their going out of business.
The Company has grown considerably and now incorporates Surrey Timber Preservation at Reigate. The Directors are particularly proud that some GTT staff have been with the Company for nearly 40 years and that it's Surveyors are highly trained and experienced in timber infestation, rising dampness and structural waterproofing.
We are very much a family company. Raymond and his wife Valerie retired from the day-to-day running of the Company on its 30th Anniversary in 2002. Ray's son, Roger, has worked for the Company for many years and, in common with all our Surveyors, is qualified in the field of damp-proofing and timber infestation surveying. Indeed all our Surveyors are highly qualified to CSRT and CSSW standard.
We pride ourselves in giving the same care and attention to all our customers whether they are first time property owners or large construction companies.
