Company History

Today, Passmores is a major manufacturer of quality timber buildings.

We supply Garages, Carriage Houses, Open Barns, Stables and Club Houses throughout the UK and overseas as well as a comprehensive range of Garden Buildings to customers in Kent, Sussex, Surrey and London.

It's hard to believe that the "seed-corn" for this family business when it started over 100 years ago, was quite literally chicken feed. Grandfather Passmore started the Poultry Farmers Supply Co. out of railway arch premises in Strood High Street at the beginning of the last century.

Chicken feed led to chicken houses and during the 1920's and 30's, the company produced a very wide range of poultry houses. Battery farming gradually killed off the demand but the spread of suburban homes led to an ever increasing need for sheds, both for storage, as well as a garden retreat.

It was in the 1950's that demand for stables, garages and cricket pavilions began to take off. Many of the designs we use today can be traced back to that era.

Over the years our product designs have been refined and improved and we are now able to offer a comprehensive range of garden buildings, garaging solutions, equestrian buildings and timber pavilions all manufactured to exacting standards.

Due to increased demand for its range of products the company embarked on a planned expansion programme in 2000 and acquired new freehold factory premises in Knight Road, Strood, where our fleet of modern low emission vehicles are also based.

The original High Street premises now accommodates our recently refurbished offices and a showground village displaying examples of all our products.
