What Clients Say
"Kirwin & Simpson are reliable, responsive, meet tight deadlines and provide us with an excellent service for all our seating requirements across our 6 theatres, from maintenance to bespoke design. We are a very happy customer."
“The Everyman [Theatre in Liverpool] seat is a result of close collaboration between client, architect, theatre consultant and manufacturer. The design and installation has been a great success and the theatre are delighted with the flexibility and comfort of the seat, it looks great as well!”
“Kirwin and Simpson were commissioned to... [replicate] the seats originally installed at the Plaza Super Cinema in October 1932. Working with historic photographs and publicity material of the period, they have completed the task by the agreed date to exacting standards. The professionalism, dedication and attention to detail shown by the Company was refreshing; nothing was too much trouble. A job thoroughly well executed.”
