Covid 19 Update

1st April 2020

Our office staff are continuing to work remotely and are fully operational. Our phone lines and email service therefore remain open as usual and our Sales, Technical and Drawing teams are available to discuss your project with you.

To ensure the health and safety of our employees and the wider community, we took the decision on 23rd March to close our manufacturing facility. We are delighted to confirm there have been no cases of corona virus amongst our colleagues during the isolation period, and therefore our factory will reopen next week, on Monday 6th April.

We have implemented a strict safe system of work, that meets all Government guidelines, in order to protect our onsite employees, suppliers and any customers wishing to collect their frames.

We will be increasing our manufacturing capacity in order to minimise any delays to production. If you are one of our existing customers please be assured we will keep you updated on the manufacture and delivery of your oak frame.

We would like to thank our first-class team who remain dedicated to our customers – past, present and future.

We wish you all good health and thank you for your continued support.
