Demax Designs has been in a continuous process of improvement and development since it was founded in 1971. As one of the original bespoke staircase manufactures in Great Britain, Demax started to design and create wrought iron gates for local businesses. Work flourished and after many years of successful trading and expanding to wrought iron garden furniture, Demax were approached to design and create railings and a spiral staircase for a new project with De Vere Gardens in London’s Kensington.
From that day on Demax was established in staircases, never to leave.
Through recommendation alone, Demax were permanently employed all over the capital: new cast metal railings and gates at St John’s Church, Stratford Broadway; restoration of balconies at Cadbury HQ in Marble Arch; projects at St James’ Square, the Bolton’s, and many more high profile addresses – synonymous with the history of London. However, the demand for castings on projects was so great that local foundries could not cope, and delivery periods grew excessively.
From 1989, not only were Demax self-sufficient in castings, with many projects in the UK and also in Jersey, USA, Seychelles and Saudi Arabia, but we were also supplying other metalworkers throughout the UK. By way of illustration of the circuitous means by which contracts can be won, the Seychelles project came about by a Seychelles client talking about his casting project to an English Architect working in South Africa, who got our name from a London Architect who drank in our local pub!!
During the late nineties the fabrication side of Demax continued with the production of railings, balconies and special commissions. In addition we designed and developed a complete range of staircases that included straight, spiral and curved staircases. From these, Demax expanded into the manufacture of all types of stairs from feature commercial contracts to bespoke domestic commissions. A truly world player.
Towards the end of 2016, Demax took a new direction with a revitalised Senior Management team and new Managing Director – still producing the same high end staircases with a never wavering stance on quality and customer service. Demax has continued to grow from strength to strength, not only with high profile national and international clients, but also with many private homes nationwide.
Current clients include Nandos, Mercedes Benz, Barratt Homes, Honda and Arab Princes.
