Manufacturing & Production

We design, manufacture and supply timber doorsets for a wide range of sectors and we offer one of the most comprehensive manufacturing services in the UK.

We combine leading technology with British craftsmanship to deliver high quality, stylish, sustainably sourced products which meet stringent security and durability requirements.

Our team can advise, manufacture and deliver components to your requirements, making use of our technology and expertise, providing you with cost effective door solutions.

We currently have three fully operational CNC machines in our factory which offer a comprehensive range of machining and cutting capabilities. All factory preparation for ironmongery can be done in house, ready for site fitting. Alternatively we can fit ironmongery in our factory when the hardware supplied by John Watson or free issued for us to fit.

We have CAD software capabilities to convert bespoke designs into the finished component; variations can be incorporated simply and quickly. This includes any grooving required to the door facings, as long as it does not invalidate fire or security requirements.

We offer full factory finishing using water based coating systems (environmentally friendly with no CFC’s or greenhouse gases); lacquering, staining, priming to meet most customer requirements.
