Tour De Yorkshire - Time To Celebrate Yorkshire

It’s well known that Yorkshire is home not only to some of the most beautiful landscapes but also to many authentic and independent businesses. For us, Tour De Yorkshire is more than just a cycle race, it is time to celebrate Yorkshire, its local businesses and people.

We’ve been Born’n’Bred in Yorkshire since 1969

Our business has started in West Yorkshire and we are still based in the same local area. In fact, did you know that we’re right in the middle of Tour De Yorkshire route this year?

50 years ago, when we started making blinds at the back of the local post office, we were the only local company making and installing our blinds. Slowly but surely, we became one of the nation’s favourite blind manufacturers and suppliers. We apply years of knowledge and experience in making and delivering our products and we believe that is what makes us different from other similar companies.


We work with some of the best people in West Yorkshire

However, the real deal of our business is the people we work with. We’re proud of our talented and hard-working team, who puts a lot of thought and care into making blinds for our customers; our suppliers who provide the best materials and components for our products and the couriers who help us to deliver bespoke handmade blinds directly to our customer doorsteps in a perfect condition.


Our Values

To ensure we all provide the same high-quality products and services to every single customer, we live by these four core values:

Customer First

We aim to wow our customers with our service and the products we make. Doesn’t matter if you come to us just for some free samples, place an order or calling because you’ve got a question on how to fit your blind, we’re here to help and do it the best way we can.

Besides, Yorkshire people are well known for their hospitality, so you can imagine how pleasing it is to deal with our customer service team.

Delivery Quality

We don’t just make blinds. We put a lot of thinking and planning into the design and mechanics of each product. We apply our experience and knowledge into every single product we make. We quality check every blind before posting it to our customers, plus our team members always share their ideas on how to improve our business.

Make a Difference

We always look at ways to improve our products and service to ensure we provide the best combination of quality and price. We always implement ideas that come from our craftspeople, who work with the blinds and curtains every day.

We Are One Team

Swift Direct Blinds is first and foremost a team of 75 people. We strive to work as one big mechanism, where each team member provides a crucial input. We all are unique in our own ways and when we all come together – great things happen, so watch this space!

Proud to Be Yorkshire

We’re proud of our story and our heritage. Want to know us a bit better? Head over to our timeline.

Here’s to Tour De Yorkshire, good luck to all the cyclist.
