K&D Joinery’s 40,000ft² factory provides one of the largest bespoke joinery manufacturing and production facilities in the UK. Starting in our timber mill where we machine the timber components, through one of our three CNC lines which includes two 5 axis machines and then onto the benches assembly, we have invested and will continue to invest in the latest wood working machinery. Enabling us to benefit from the latest technical advances, ensuring that the components we use in manufacture are accurately produced every time and add to the quality of our finished products. The same ethos is applied in our finishing shop and glazing department. We actively encourage our clients to visit our factory to see for themselves the level of expertise, the focus on quality and our attention to detail.
It was in July 2005 and the momentous decision to award London the 2012 Olympics that changed the direction of the company dramatically. Like many businesses directly affected by the London Development Agency’s plans for the new Olympic Park, K&D Joinery had to relocate. Larry’s search for new premises revealed an empty factory on a 1.5 acre site in Chequers Lane Dagenham. Previously a 25,000 ft2 engineering factory, Larry purchased the site and invested in expanding and renovating the existing building. Adding office space, machinery for a new timber mill and much improved facilities for manufacture, glazing, decorating and finishing he transformed the tired building into a superb joinery manufacturing facility. With the work space all on one level the company created an efficient joinery production facility that allowed the flow of work to move through the various processes, enabling production and capacity to rapidly grow.
K&D Joinery continues to invest in its production facilities and as its capacity grows the attention to quality and service is constantly the focus of how we develop the business, employing the right kind of skilled staff in all areas of the company, creating a team environment that is reflected in the quality of our products and services.
