Precision Woodworking

Gordon Ellis & Co –
150 years of experience

Over the last 150 years, our family woodwork business has grown from small beginnings, with horses and hand tools, to today’s modern CNC precision woodworking.

We started making wooden window frames for buildings, but now can make a wide variety of products and components. We can machine composites, produce beautiful wooden furniture and make everything from jar lids to hardwood planters. The one consistent factor has been innovation – working hard to meet our customers’ expectations, even if that takes investment in new equipment and techniques.

It’s not just computers, we still make use of traditional skills today, passed down through the decades, which gives us the best of both worlds and a thorough understanding of working with a wide range of softwood, hardwood and treated timber. Our development team and engineers have the knowledge and experience to help you achieve a technically superior and cost-effective solution, tailored to your needs.

Upon project inception, our designers will work closely with your project team to create a compelling product solution. Our development team is constantly working with materials supply and manufacturing technology to ensure we are at the forefront of our industry. Thanks to our own in-house finishing, assembly and packing departments, we can keep a close eye on the quality of your finished items and strive to ensure you are always satisfied with the quality of our work.

Here are some of the benefits of working with Gordon Ellis & Co:
