our history

In 1926 Fred Crocker bought Copeland’s Wood Yard on Station Road in Chellaston, his three sons Fred, Henry and Lawrence became Crocker Brothers turning their hands to tree cutting and building. In 1947, with a dip in experienced labour due to the war, the brothers were asked to help erect the marquees at Derby Show. With money tight the show organisers paid the brothers with the marquees from the show and 76 years later although marquees styles and materials have changed completely we are still providing marquee hire and marquee manufacturing to companies and individuals throughout the UK.
