In 2015 we are celebrating 10 years of the Lapa Company! Founded by Craig Ormiston, The Lapa Company was created in order to introduce authentically built Lapas, a traditional South African thatched structure into the UK. Our very first order in 2005 was for a simple set of timber poles from the South African Eucalyptus Grandis tree.
Today we provide customers with Lapas, gazebos, premium outdoor kitchens, Real Fyres and timber poles. We have a growing team based at our Kent workshop and they take great pride in providing buildings of the highest quality. We handcraft each structure and can create bespoke designs which are utilised by homeowners, zoos, hotels and many more.
We are also proud representatives of premium outdoor kitchens brand Fire Magic and BeefEater Barbecues.
As an Affiliate member of the British Association of Landscape Industries (BALI) we have strong industry connections. We are a sponsor of the 2014 Society of Garden Designers Awards (The SGD) and will be exhibiting our gazebos and outdoor kitchens at the very popular Landscape Show in September 2015.
We have just launched exciting new additions to our website, www.thelapacompany.co.uk giving you a greater insight into the craftsmanship behind our structures and you can even see a timeline of the company in 'our history'.
To celebrate our 10 year anniversary we will also be launching a brand new product incorporating the very best of the Lapa Company into one unique design... keep an eye out later this year for all the details!
We would like to take this opportunity to thank the many suppliers, associations and customers we have worked with in the previous 10 years, and we look forward to moving forwards with you all into the future.
Craig and The Lapa Company.
