About Us

Our Story

Parker and Duckmanton was created nine years ago by Russell Parker and Andrew Duckmanton. The duo had known and worked together for over 10 years, and wanted to join forces and put their combined efforts into their own business.

In doing so, they also successfully developed a solid team of experienced tradesmen around them.
