Origin of Spook Erection Limited

Spook Erection first came into being when, then Market Trader, Nigel Maby took on the supply, erection and dismantling of stalls, which he manufactured to his own design, for a Local Authority Market in 1968 and has since then, without a break of any kind, continued to provide stalls and services to General Retail Markets.

Spook Erections unusual Logo "the pergnant ghost" found its origin from Nigel Mabys, then nickname of “Spook”, coupled with and reflecting his first venture into supplying market stalls and in that instance having to erect them after midnight as quietly as possible in the Market Square concerned. The "pregnant" side of things, came from the the way the business is always on the look out to expand into new towns.

Spook Erection has over its many years conscientiously tried to ensure, via turning all new occurrences into precedence and setting examples, as to how it, "spook" should instruct, guide and deal with its employees and traders and in so doing trusts that whenever humanly possible the same mistake may not be missed, including ideas and principals be not lost. As may be appreciated, by the sheer volume of his written manual, which consists of 1,072 pages. Nigel Maby first published in 1982.

Although sadly, Nigel Maby died in 2004, Spook Erection continues on in his name, with his wife Lesley Maby at the helm. "Spook" currently operate 9 weekly Markets and Car Boots throughout the 52 week of the year.
