Our Heritage

We have been helping people transform their homes since 1965

Although Passmore Group started small, we always had big ambitions.

Most recently, In 2017, Passmores continued there success with the acquisition of Charms Bathrooms of Harrogate, a move that sought to save jobs and preserve the 100-year old legacy of the bathroom retail company.


Commenting on the deal, Tony Passmore, said: “Charms is similarly a family-run brand synonymous with trust, quality and integrity, so the fit into our stable of companies was perfect. We look forward to bringing 50 years of installation expertise to the table – especially for some of Charms’ clientele who may have previously used the company for ‘supply only’ bathroom purchases.” you can read more about the acquisition here.
