We are committed, as a Company, to minimising damage to the environment, and we believe that our clients have a similar commitment. We and they are increasingly aware of the effects of landfill, traffic, and air pollution, and the need to conserve natural resources such as wood; we are rightly held to account for our role in protecting our environment.
Where possible, we use locally sourced wood – supporting businesses in the area and helping to reduce the pollution caused by long-distance haulage. Our wood comes from suppliers who manage their forests responsibly – look for the FSC trademark which means that wood is produced in accordance with the rules of the Forest Stewardship Council.
A kitchen built in solid wood can last a lifetime.
We recently received a call from a customer who we fitted a kitchen for 17 years ago, as the now 17 year old fridge was beginning to fail. She assured us that the kitchen was still looking as beautiful as ever but needed our help in obtaining a new, replacement appliance. We were of course delighted to hear from her and to help with this request. In todays throwaway society we couldn’t be prouder to be designing and manufacturing furniture that is built to last – and quality, energy efficient appliances also play a key role in looking after our environment.

KITCHEN & FINE FURNITURE MAKERS
Appliances that we source for clients have, as far as possible, the highest rating for efficiency. We love to incorporate recycling and composting bins within our kitchen units, so that clients have the opportunity to recycle their own waste products efficiently.
In our workshop, we are committed to care of the environment in disposing of our own waste products: we give our sawdust to local farmers, use our small offcuts of wood for heating, and dispose safely of those materials that we can’t burn. In a continuing search for new ways to protect our planet, we are currently researching the use of natural paints for our hand-finished furniture.
