Skilled Joiners

We believe that we have some of the most highly skilled joiners in the country. Many of them have the ability and aptitude to produce joinery items that many other manufacturers would decline owing to their complexity. Behind them is a team of up and coming joiners with a few years experience who are willing and eager to learn more and join the highly skilled team.

Apprentice Joiners

We strongly believe in apprenticeships to enable the skills of experienced joiners to be passed down to younger generations and this has been a successful means of perpetuating our skill base.
