L West & Son is a family run business which was established at the end of the Second World War in 1945.
Now over seventy years later it is run from workshops set within a centuries old barn in the village of East Dean, which nestles in a fold of the South Downs in West Sussex, where the family name dates back to well before the barn was first constructed. Traces of the West’s name can be found in the village back to the 15th century.
Gilbert West, the current proprietor, continues to run the business to the strict guidelines of value, quality, and craftsmanship which were laid down by his father from the very outset.
The company is proud that their skills and experience have resulted in a reputation for excellence.
Both of Gilbert’s sons work for the business, Luke works alongside Gilbert on the carpentry side and Jake is responsible for the plumbing side.
