Meet the Team

Patterns & Moulds remains a family firm with a loyal staff.  We enjoy exceptionally low turnover of staff which in turn means that you benefit from real depth of knowledge and experience and a genuine passion for your project.

These are the people who will take your idea or plan and turn it into a practical, and often beautiful reality.  Here are some things you should know ...

MD George Lucas & Gary Lucas

Founder George and son Gary embody the company’s guiding principles of craftsmanship, quality, service and value.  When you contact us to discuss your project, you’ll most likely speak to George or Gary and each will offer expert, impartial advice, irrespective of whether we’ll ultimately supply the moulds for your work.


Whether it’s a timber mould for pre-cast concrete or shuttering for in-situ concrete pouring, your project will be overseen by our team of expert, time-served, experienced carpenters and joiners.

Not just the stars of our own videos, the team have been filmed at work by the BBC making timber moulds for an entry in the Chelsea Flower Show.

GRP Specialists

Our specialist team of fibre glass laminators have amassed more than one hundred years’ experience between them in the composites industry.  They produce all of our GRP Moulds and GRP Formwork.

CNC, Design and Drawing

Gary Lucas and his team of supervisors undertake all of your CAD drawings and 3D modelling before operating our state of the art CNC routers to create patterns, prototypes and precision products to exacting specifications.
