Our History

Manufacturing steel furniture since 1995

The Tube Creation Company has been manufacturing metal furniture for contract furniture companies for almost three decades. Throughout the years we have worked with some of the country’s most respected furniture brands and have developed a reputation renowned for quality products, expert knowledge, and exceptional service.


Bob and Chris Vyse established the company in 1995, manufacturing chairs and other metal furniture components primarily for the Office and Educational sectors.

Bob and Chris have since retired; however, these sectors remain an integral part of the business.


On Bob and Chris’s retirement in 2014, the business was bought by Jake Bailey who had been a long-standing customer of the company. Jake brought a wealth of knowledge and many years’ experiences in the world of contract furniture.

His Aim – to follow in the founders’ values but move the business forward to keep pace with the ever-changing furniture market – by investing in new systems, machinery, and most importantly, its people.



Two years on and the business was doing well, we had increased our team considerably and invested heavily in plant machinery, it was time to expand. At the end of 2016, we moved into a new factory twice the size.

The new building brought the much-needed space we required to meet demand and a significant improvement in working conditions for our workforce.


The growth continued, by 2019 we were seeing substantial increases in many other sectors outside of the Office and Educational market. Our horizons were broadening, and so it was time to expand again. At the end of 2019, we occupied our brand new, purpose built warehouse interlinked to our existing factory.

The additional building led to many operational improvements and gave us the freedom to explore much larger contract projects.
