Metcalf (Leenside) Ltd began in the heart of Nottingham on what is now the modern day Canal street.
Formerly known as Leenside and Station Street, the area was a hive of activity for transportation via the waterways that connected the River Leen to the River Trent.
Back then, boat covers, tarpaulins, ropes and twine were in high demand from the local canal users.

We can layer up on materials that include a foam or solid insert to ensure delicate equipment is suitably protected.
