Company Information & History


Sid Cubbage Offices

Sidney Cubbage Limited started trading in 1927, although there is evidence that a 'Cubbage Bros' was in existence prior to the 1914/18 war.

One of the original brothers, Sid, started Sidney Cubbage Limited  and the other, Ron, ultimately took over from his father to run J.W. Cubbage Limited. J.W. Cubbage's were in Dashwood Avenue, but ceased trading some time in the 1970's.

Sidney Cubbage originally started from 'Crown Forge' in St. Mary's Street and later moved to workshops under the railway arches in Frogmoor where they stayed until 1955, when they moved to a purpose built factory on the recently opened Cressex Industrial Estate.

Hoover's, the adjacent company wanted to expand and purchased the factory in Coronation Road, Cressex Industrial Estate, High Wycombe. The company undertook a diverse range of services including a smithy, manufacturing kilns, spray booths and steel framed buildings.

At that time, Leslie Cubbage was Managing Director with John McGregor and Paul Remsbury as Directors. The wide diversity of functions did not always prove successful and following a poor trading year in 1968 it was decided to split the company.

Paul Remsbury and Rod Harris undertook a management buyout of the company in 1971 running the heating and ventilating contracting business as Sidney Cubbage (H & V) Ltd. from offices in Crendon Street. The kiln and fabrication section remained at Lincoln Road under Leslie Cubbage.

In 1972 a of an acre site was purchased and a new factory named 'Harrem House' (Har-ris & Rem-sbury) was built in Ogilvie Road, High Wycombe. In 1982 Rod Harris retired and the company later moved to offices in Green Street, High Wycombe in 1987. They subsequently moved back to Harrem House in May 2008. Paul Remsbury & his wife Anne semi-retired in February 1996 and their son Steve became Managing Director.

 Dave Smith was subsequently promoted to Joint Managing Director in May 2002. Sidney Cubbage (H & V) Limited has continued to expand and branch out into other areas of building services and now offers Plumbing, Ventilation and Air Conditioning, in addition to Heating and Hot Water Services.

Our staff personnel are all trained within the heating and ventilating industry, those in Director and Managerial level have varying entries to the CIBSE qualifications and membership. The company also carried out staff training in a wide spectrum of subjects from current water regulations and pressurisation, to contract law etc.

The company is equipped with Estimation Limited company system to produce quick and accurate quotations and AutoCad drawing software to ensure an efficient turnaround at all stages of a project, from initial design through producing working drawings, to final as-installed documentation.


Many new buildings now require sophisticated building engineering services, and it is essential that a specialist contractor is chosen who can plan, control and execute the contract professionally, ensuring these services are installed to the correct specification, at the correct price, and on time.
