The Safestyle Group has been in existence for over twenty years.

The original company in the group, HPAS Limited (trading as Safestyle) began trading in January 1993 as a company which provided mortgages for right-to-buy council tenants. The purchasers of these properties were able to take advantage of the difference between the market value, on which the amount of mortgage was calculated, and the discounted purchase price and were often minded to invest the equity released in home improvements. Safestyle sold these leads for home improvements to prospective suppliers.

Shortly after being founded, Safestyle started to follow up on these leads itself and focused on double glazed replacement PVCu windows and doors. The replacement windows and doors were purchased from a trade supplier until 1996 when Windowstyle UK Limited was incorporated to manufacture them.

In 1998, Sitestyle Limited was incorporated and focused on the new build and commercial market for double glazed PVCu windows and doors. In 2001, Tradestyle UK Limited was incorporated to supply the trade market with double glazed PVCu windows and doors.

In 2000, Style Group UK Limited was incorporated as a holding company of three sales companies, HPAS (trading as Safestyle), Sitestyle and Tradestyle, and the manufacturing company Windowstyle.

The group began focusing on the homeowner market and in 2003 and 2008 sold Sitestyle Limited and Tradestyle Limited respectively resulting in the group becoming a retailer and manufacturer of PVCu windows and doors to the homeowner replacement market solely. Shortly after the manufacturing operation of Windowstyle UK Limited was integrated within the Safestyle business (operated from HPAS Limited).

Safestyle UK plc (the holding company of the Safestyle Group) was admitted to trading on AIM in December 2013.

Safestyle UK plc is subject to the UK City Code on Takeovers and Mergers.
