Working with leading suppliers

Manufacturing process

Our process begins with cutting our raw materials, they are then edged, bored, built, cleaned, and wrapped for distribution.  

Sustainable sourced MFC 18mm depth and sized 2800mm x 2070mm full panels are delivered.

Raw boards are cut using our Homag and Felder CNC router machines

Edge banders are used to edge the raw fronts of the MFC using PUR glue and AdvantEdge hot air systems to achieve a zero-joint effect when bonding and edging. 

We have components that need side drilling in the boring process for the cam and dowels before building can proceed.

Cabinets are hand built and metal work components are added (hinges, drawers, pull out mechanisms) at our dedicated cabinet building station.

Each cabinet goes through rigorous quality checks at every stage of the process and at each manufacturing station. One final and thorough inspection and sign off takes place at the end.

Our wrapping and packaging team securely wrap our fully built cabinets and bespoke components.

Sent from our distribution centres straight to our customer homes across the UK.
