About Us

mil-3-men.jpgThe site we are on was originally called Pump House Farm.


The name Tomlinson Parbans comprises of the names of Mr Arthur Tomlinson and Mr Charles Parrack.
Mr Walter Tomlinson (son of Arthur Tomlinson) owned the land where we now stand. During the 2nd World War, it was used as a strategic Timber Depot for the storing of Greenheart Timber which the government used to repair the Manchester Ship Canal Locks and Docks.

In approximately 1950, the yard and stock burnt to the ground. The fire could be seen as far as New Mills as the Fire Brigade tried to pump water from the canal to dowse the 50ft high flames.
The yard was re-built after the fire and Mr Tomlinson carried on as a timber merchant and joinery manufacturer.

Parbans was started in Levenshulme by the present Chairman's Father; Mr Charles Parrack, originally making garden sheds and asbestos garages. When Walter Tomlinson retired in 1968, Mr Gordon Parrack decided to move to High Lane in order to expand his business and bought out Mr Tomlinson, who sadly died in 1970.
Mr Gordon Parrack saw the need to expand and moved into the DIY Market.

Peter Lamb joined the company in 1978 as Trainee Manager, Neil Fairhurst joined in 1979 as a Joiner. The running of the company was left to Peter in 1990 and has since gone from strength to strength under his leadership.

Neil Fairhurst took over as Joinery Manager in 1989 and has built up an excellent reputation for quality bespoke joinery, but from 2016, has now retired from the business, leaving the management of the joinery department to Phil Roberts, who will be taking it forward with a more modern approach and some exciting new machinery.
