Draper & Nichols was founded in 1960 by Ronnie Draper & Gordon Nichols and in 1977 became a private limited company.


In the 1980s Ronnie’s eldest son, Leslie, joined the company as a foreman carpenter and was soon made a Director. When Gordon retired Ronnie and Leslie ran the Company until the mid-1990s when Ronnie felt it was time to hand over the reins to Leslie.


During this period Kevin Nabarro joined the company, in 1993, as the Small Works Manager and in 2002 was made a Director. During 2007 Leslie retired and Kevin took over the company as sole owner.
