About Gould Garments
1964 | Gould Radiators
Gould Radiators was established in 1964, when Mike Gould started a company to repair vehicle radiators. Mike expanded the business activities and in 1974 the manufacture of number plates was introduced. Steady growth was achieved by maintaining a high level of service, quality products and competitive pricing. Today, as Gould Autoplates & Signs, not only are we one of the largest number plate suppliers in the UK, Gould’s have also expanded into the number plate market in Europe and Asia.
1986 | Gould Autoplates & Signs Ltd
In 1986 the company took the opportunity to form a new division, ‘Gould Autoplates & Signs Ltd.’ Specializing in the production of external and internal signs, vehicle liveries, banners, window graphics and many other applications of vinyl, steel and acrylic substrates. As well as supplying and fitting to a large and established customer base in the South West, Gould’s now supply to a vast variety of nationwide customers too!
2001 | Relocation
After many years of expansion and development, we out grew our Bristol offices and had to look for a new home. Not only did we need somewhere that could handle the many large deliveries and collections that were becoming part of the daily routine, we also required larger storage areas too. So with this in mind, in 2001, we relocated the whole business to our new home in Nailsea. We are located on the South West side of Bristol with excellent links to the M4 & M5 motorways, 5 minutes drive from Bristol airport and a 10 minute drive to Bristol City centre.
Our 10,000 square foot unit has enabled us to build an internal vehicle fitting bay, large enough to accommodate any size vehicle (what ever the weather!), quadruple our number plate storage capacity and introduce a next day pallet delivery service for our larger UK and overseas clients. Now, with the extra room, we now have many other exciting possibilities, including a garment and work wear supply and printing division which was added in 2003.
Family Run Business
As a family run business, we pride ourselves on our reputation and attention to detail, which we believe has helped us to gain contracts for a large number of companies, with projects ranging from sign installation at Bristol International Airport, vehicle livery suppliers to many large and prestigious companies, Car mats and vehicle branding supplier to various car leasing companies. Banner and sign supplier to Bristol city council and Number plate supplier to well over 2000 local and national companies, including dealerships, PDI centres, Groups, garages and motor accessories shops to name a few.
