Since joining the industry in 1971, Francis Cunild has seen enormous changes in the market for shower enclosures, from an all but non-existent level to such popularity that few bathrooms would be designed without them. He also took Matki to become a recognisable name in the shower enclosure industry.

Francis Cunild commented: “My time with Matki and in the UK bathroom industry has been a great pleasure to me. Above all I have been very lucky to meet and work with so many extraordinarily good people; customers, suppliers and colleagues alike. Thank you all for your support and I wish you all the very best”.

Commenting on taking over the reins of Matki, Nicholas Cunild said: “Congratulations to my Dad on his retirement and all he has achieved at Matki in the last 44 years! I have really enjoyed working with him and have learnt a great deal from him. Going forward, my focus will be to build on his successes by continuing to improve the high quality product we design and manufacture and the service we provide to our customers.”
