establish in 1965 we manage over 600 bathroom adaptations each year.
A true family-run business, B&K Passmore Ltd was first established by husband and wife team, Brian and Kathleen Passmore, who originally ran the business from their home before purchasing their first showroom in 1970.
In 2011, the company relocated to their current Head Office in Wortley, Leeds, where they boost a 2000 sqft Bathroom Showroom to showcase their wide range of high quality easy access, mobility and disabled bathroom products and designs
When Brian and Kathleen retired in 2005, the leadership of the company was handed to their two sons, Steve and Tony Passmore. Both have worked in the business since leaving school, and work with determination to ensure that their parents' core values of honesty, integrity and trust continue to resonate through every aspect of the company's offering.
Our mission is to ensure that those who are elderly or physically impaired can safely maintain their independence for longer whether at home or in a care setting, with complete bathroom solutions that best fit their individual needs.
Our vision is to become Yorkshire's most trusted brand for complete bathroom solutions for the elderly and physically impaired in terms of offering the best advice and finding the right solution.
In 2012, the company was re-branded and is now known as Passmore Group, with three sub-divisions;More Ability, More Bathrooms and More Build. Comprehensive home improvement specialists, Passmore Group can carry out any work on your home, short of building you a brand new one!
More Ability offers a complete bathroom solutions service, specialising in bathroom adaptations and alterations for those with additional physical needs, the retired, elderly and disabled.
More Bathrooms offers a complete bathroom design, supply and installation service.
More Build offers a complete building solutions service.
Most recently in 2018, and following the successful acquisition 12-months prior, we expanded our Harrogate Showroom and introduced More Ability to the area, in order to provide a safe and stylish bathroom solution for local residents. Following extensive renovations the existing 3,000 sq.ft. space now also showcases stylish yet accessible bathrooms, which aim to improve the independence of over 65’s and the less-able.
In 2017 Passmore Group, home of More Bathrooms, More Ability & More Build, continued there success with the acquisition of Charms Bathrooms of Harrogate, a move that sought to save jobs and preserve the 100-year old legacy of the bathroom retail company.
Commenting on the deal, Tony Passmore, said: “Charms is similarly a family-run brand synonymous with trust, quality and integrity, so the fit into our stable of companies was perfect. We look forward to bringing 50 years of installation expertise to the table – especially for some of Charms’ clientele who may have previously used the company for ‘supply only’ bathroom purchases.” you can read more about the acquisition here.
Although Passmore Group primarily offers bespoke and main stream bathroom solutions and building services across the Yorkshire region, the company also carry out work in the public sector for local authorities and schools across the North of England.
