Our Team

Our Story

Our workshop is located in the market town of Shrewsbury, in the heart of Shropshire. We employ skilled and experienced furniture makers and finishers, supported by a team of technical designers. The workshop is equipped with precision tooling accurate to 1/10th of a millimeter, and the mechanisms we use for our doors and drawers are the very best available.

We have a rigorous quality control process. Each kitchen is put together at our workshop before being packed and wrapped for delivery, so that we can check it thoroughly before starting installation in a client’s home.

We continually experiment with, and develop, new finishes, new mechanisms, new material applications, and new manufacturing techniques, enabling us to offer innovative new designs for our kitchens and furniture. It is for these reasons, that many of the country’s leading architects and interior designers trust us to bring their ideas to life without compromising on quality or functionality.

In 2023 we won the Designer Magazine award for British Design and Manufacturing.

We use accomplished cabinet makers to fit our kitchens. This ensures that the kitchens are installed with the same level of care and competence as was used during their manufacture. We also assign a project manager to every kitchen. This helps improve communication and organisation before, during and after the kitchen installation.

How we Work

Kitchen Extensions and Renovations

To replace a kitchen can be complicated. To prepare the space for the new kitchen involves removal of the old kitchen, plumbing, electrics, plastering, floor laying, new skirting boards, new lighting, perhaps new heating, and certainly redecoration. Other internal alterations may also be required such as changes to the location of walls, doors, and glazing.

Our in-house construction team are experts at managing full kitchen refurbishment projects, including extensions.

If required our design consultants will submit the planning application, organise the structural engineer’s visits, and appoint the building inspector. Our design process, provides the construction team with all of the necessary drawings for them to carry out the work required in preparation for the installation of a new kitchen.

We allocate a project designer to every project to help with the selection of interior fittings such as flooring and lighting. This helps to ensure fittings arrive on time.

Our construction team work hand in glove with our workshop, so that the kitchen space is perfectly prepared for the date of the kitchen delivery. We are one team working to deliver one vision, on time, on budget and without compromise.
