E Poppleton


The Poppleton name is synonymous with quality ventilation solutions and underpins a reputation for the provision of products and services delivered proactively, in support of our valued clients. However the history of Poppleton goes back to the early 1900’s and Our Story identifies the journey of this remarkable company. Today, Poppleton’s values remain the same. Supporting a proud heritage, we continue to ensure that safety remains at the forefront in all of our work and we continue to drive standards and performance throughout the HVAC industry. We strive to lead the ventilation sector through our engagement with some of the UK’s foremost trade and academic bodies, promoting training and technology in order to build upon the longstanding success of our business, and we ensure that our clients benefit from the fantastic work of our people. In doing so we will ensure that Our Story continues and that we build upon the heritage of E Poppleton & Son.
