“The Smart family can be traced back to the early 18th century, where for many generations they were agricultural labourers in the Hamlets of Gloucestershire. In the mid 19th century Francis Smart and his sons Frederick & George were cabinet makers in Gloucester. By 2005 F & G Smart (Shopfittings) Ltd was in the hands of the fifth generation of the same family, and celebrating its 135th anniversary. In 2008, whilst the world was in a state of financial crisis, and the credit crunch hit everyone, F & G Smart Shop fittings rose to a new level. As more customers become more price conscious they are searching around more. By still offering the best possible prices and the best service to the retail shop fitting market, we have managed to obtain an astounding growth with both new and existing customers. Our range has increased, with us now offering Tegometall and Arnet Shelving, Store-it Direct Storage Racking, refrigeration, and more.”, noted Alllinson.
