Meet the boss
Ian Watkinson is the Director of the company and aspires for it to grow and continue to be highly successful. The main aspirations for Ian are to produce a high standard of craftsmanship into the future. Employing local skilled craftsmen and particularly to train apprentices so there are people to continue the skills into the future.
We also do work experience with the local school in Thirsk. This is an amazing opportunity for the younger ones to get involved with cabinetry and joinery at a younger age.
As of now we have got two joiner apprentices and one digital marketing apprentice. After they have completed their apprenticeships, they will carry on working for Ian. Taking care of the business and making it grow more and more in the years to come.
