Carpentry/Joinery Manufacturing

We also offer a complete manufacturing service from the company’s fully fitted joinery workshop that is supported by a highly skilled & dedicated workforce.

Specialist carpentry requirements and ‘small runs’ are also catered for.

Manufactured items are finished 'in house' in our spray booths or alternatively finished, for example, by French polishing. This facility provides total quality control and the highest quality finished product.

We welcome enquiries & visits to our workshop.
