General Info ...
About: Master Thatchers (North) Ltd (MTN) was established in 1985 by Peter Brugge as part of the franchise organisation then run by Thatching Advisory Services Ltd (TAS).

Peter had started in the thatching industry three years previously after graduating from Warwick University with an honours degree. Peter was the first of his family to enter the trade – the surname ‘Brugge’ derives from his Dutch father – strangely enough a country with a fine thatching tradition.

During his time with TAS Peter travelled to work on contracts in the Unites States and Africa and in conjunction with TAS provided his own workforce which helped thatch the three Daily Mail Ideal Home Exhibition roofs at Earls Court London in the 1980’s and 1990’s.

MTN in the early years worked predominantly in the North-West of England close to their Altrincham base. As the demand for their services grew they began to travel further a field and the workforce increased in size to also cope with the increased workload.

Peter has always believed that the key to growing the business has been to teach new personnel, both British and more recently Polish, although he also employed Polish workers in the mid to late 1980’s long before the more recent influx of Polish people to Britain.
