About us Fredrick Edwin Thompson ( grandfather ) was a plumber during the war. He formed Thompson & Leigh soon after the war in 1946 to supply plumbing & sanitary ware to the building trade. The original premises were at 272 Broadway, Bexleyheath. Douglas B. Thompson joined T & L in 1955 after serving in the RAF. The company started to make fireplaces in a small lock up and after a few months moved to premises at Harrow Manorway, Abbey Wood in 1947/8 producing over 100 per week selling to local authorities and builders.
As a newly reformed Thompson & Leigh, our first bathroom showroom was sited in Unit 2 Bourne Industrial Park. It had ten bath suites, all Armitage Shanks. We boasted revolutionary colours like Sun King, Pampas, Wild Sage and Champagne. We could even offer you a thermostatic shower, and a glass bath screen. Cast iron baths ruled the sales, acrylic would never take over. The success of this showroom prompted us to move to Fraser Road, Erith. It was a bigger premise's, and a different time. Cast baths were fading, colours disappearing. The demise of UK based brands had started. Roca, Hansgrohe, Villeroy and Boch were the trend. Times change.
