The company specialises in the manufacturing of doors, windows, staircases, orangeries, and conservatories, working on projects that range from installations to extensions to restorations. Committed to excellence, R&E Falkingham Joinery prioritises the customer experience and the quality of its products. Serving a 40-mile radius around its workshop in Kelfield, R&E Falkingham Joinery primarily works directly with consumers, but a minor percentage of its clientele are high-end small building and restoration firms. All of the company’s products are custom made for the specific project, enabling them to tailor all details to suit their requirements. At R&E Falkingham Joinery, excellence is achieved through the use of traditional techniques in combination with modern technologies. As well as this, the company conducts thorough research to ensure that the materials it uses are the best on the market. For example, R&E Falkingham Joinery only manufactures in Accoya, an extremely sustainable timber, sourced from providers that are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). This type of timber delivers unrivalled durability compared to others, offering a 50-year rot-free guarantee. It enables the company to create products that are not only sustainable but also long-lasting, requiring minimal upkeep. At the same time, being custom made for each project, they are aesthetically pleasing and unique. R&E Falkingham Joinery is proud to manufacture its products entirely in the UK, serving customers locally. Before placing an order, customers are invited to visit the company’s workshop showroom to gain a thorough understanding of its products whilst learning about timber choice, paint choice, and ironmongery choice. As well as this, clients can make an appointment to visit the R&E Falkingham Joinery workshop during the manufacturing process. They can view the progress of their project at every stage, from raw timber through to completion, enabling them to understand the company’s expert craftsmanship. Through this, customers are provided with complete transparency, allowing them to rest assured that their project is in good hands. Internally, the R&E Falkingham Joinery team consists of 19 individuals, who each contribute towards its vibrant, happy culture. Every department has an important role to play in ensuring that the product is made to the client’s specifications. All staff members are well-trained and aware of their role and responsibilities, which they work hard to fulfil in their work. Overall, the team is very close-knit and regularly meet up outside of work to encourage communication and teamwork. In hiring, R&E Falkingham Joinery primarily seeks candidates that are passionate about working with a family-run company. They must also be committed to providing customers with an experience that exceeds their expectations, both in standard of service and in product quality. As a result of its excellent work, R&E Falkingham Joinery has received a multitude of positive feedback. For example, one satisfied customer states, “R&E Falkingham Joinery is second to none. Over the years, we have commissioned three beautiful large windows and a truly spectacular new conservatory. If you want exquisite attention to detail and deep pride in craftsmanship, then look no further.” In light of this glowing praise, it is no surprise that R&E Falkingham Joinery has been named Best Family-Run Joinery Business, Yorkshire, in the British Made Awards 2023. Recently, the company has invested in increasing its overall workshop space, including the addition of a new state-of-the-art spray finishing facility.
