Ian and Sally Frost founded Newton & Frost Fencing Ltd (NFF Ltd) in 1979 with a loan of £2,000. They began with farm and domestic fencing and quickly progressed to new road projects.
Apart from installing acoustic (noise) and crash barrier fencing, their Horam premises have a very well stocked timber yard supplying the trade and general public with timber and steel building materials, tools etc. at low prices. NFF Ltd. is now a leader in their industry with a wealth of knowledge and an excellent national reputation.
A few years ago they opened up their fast-growing timber buildings division offering a complete design service of stunning buildings ranging from contemporary garden offices, summerhouses, workshops, sheds, log cabins to bespoke builds.
NFF's equestrian buildings section is a proud supplier to The All England Jumping Course at Hickstead, British Eventing as well as the general public.
The Company's values are honesty, integrity and mutual respect which extends to both employees and clients. NFF's nominated charity is the youth foundation; Wealden Works. This wonderful organisation helps struggling youngsters in the local area, to make a successful transition from full-time education to the workplace. Over the years more than 30 students from Wealden Works have secured either work experience or employment with NFF Ltd. Another charitable link is with Plumpton College's Supported Internship Programme at Hastings which helps students learn practical skills that can be transferred to the workplace.
Based in a rural location, NFF supports other local businesses and sources employees from the surrounding villages where possible.
