Rick - 32 Years at Aquarius of Howden
Rick is a director and co-owner of Aquarius. He will look after your project once the date has been set. He will sort out any technical details your design requires, keep you informed of the production process and arrange payment details and any aftersales requirements. Rick was a civil servant before starting in business with Graham and had travelled and run other smaller businesses before that. He has recently revisited the realms of academic study in order to ‘keep in shape’ completing an OU degree in physics in 2009. His other interests are summer and winter climbing and he dabbles in music and the arts.
Graham - 32 Years at Aquarius of Howden
Graham is a director and co-owner of Aquarius. He is probably the first person you will meet and looks after all aspects of the showroom and sales. Before starting the company 32 years ago with Co owner Rick, he worked in the electronics industry (pre-silicone chip!). He will help you through the whole process of design and quotation and hopefully scheduling of your installation. Graham is a keen gardener and enjoys photography and travel. As a co-founder of Aquarius he is jointly responsible for the company philosophy which puts customer satisfaction and a clear conscience above profit margins. This guarantees a good night’s sleep even if it has thus far eluded other more conventional ideas of wealth.
Andy - 24 Years at Aquarius of Howden
Andy is our multi skilled installer and now main surveyor, designer and estimater. It was clear from the start (straight from school) that he would waltz through his training and quickly become a highly skilled tradesman. He has now been with us for over 24 years and made the successful move to the showroom in the early noughties. Andy is the one you are most likely to meet in the early stages of buying an Aquarius bathroom. His cheerful and helpful disposition and his ability to turn a customer’s ideas into an impressive individual design is one of the corner stones of the Aquarius experience. Andy is a keen sportsman, musician and family man.
