About Us

Simons is a long established family business founded in 1900 by Davis Simons after emigrating from his native Russia. He created a hard working, energetic company which is still apparent today. Succeeded by his son, Jack, the company was first established as a manufacturer and supplier to the reproduction furniture industry.



His three sons, Stephen, Howard and Brian continued the same work ethic and entered into the picture framing industry in the 1970's. Since then, the 4th generation of Daniel, Anthony and Robert joined the company to continue the family commitment and service to our customers well into the 21st century.

In the 1980s, Emafyl began with its production of extruded polystyrene and in 1996 received the Queen’s Award for Export Achievement.

Occupying some 130,000 square feet, we now have over 8000 product lines in our range, including 2500 different picture mouldings and an extensive range of mountboard and framing sundries.  There are a huge selection of framing machinery products, distributing all the major brands such as Cassese, Alfamachine, Keencut, Morso and host of others.  We are the sole distributors in the UK for Valiani Mountcutting equipment.

We also have a large selection of different types of mirrors, glass furniture , swept and oval frames.  Finally, we have a impressive selection of artists materials, including canvas by Fredrix, brushes by Rekab and oil paints by Ferrario. 

We are proud to have invented the concept for the framing industry of being a one stop station for all framing supplies .   We very much look forward to serving you and we never forget that a company is only as successful as its customers.
