The Great Shutter Co. was founded by Mike Schnuppe to provide a local service offering affordable luxury to Hampshire and Surrey and West Sussex homes. Mike has been at the forefront of the plantation shutter industry for over 20 years. During this time he has launched numerous shutter ranges into the UK market for the UK’s largest shutter distributor and so knows the materials, profiles and specifications intimately.
