We are very proud that our kitchens are made in Britain. Proud because it means we have the opportunity to support local crafts, create local jobs and continue to pass down traditional methods of joinery. Our bespoke kitchens are built by passionate craftsmen in Kent. Keeping things local and working with independent British brands is important to us, not only is the quality of the products superior, it is also a way of ensuring independent retailers thrive. We know there are many choices when choosing a kitchen, and we are appreciative when families choose to invest in us.
Today we decided to share the love to some of our other favourite companies who make their products in the UK and represent some of the best in innovation in the UK. We have asked Armac Martin, Perrin & Rowe and Mylands paint why they too are proud to make their products in the UK.
Armac Martin have been making beautiful handles from their workshop in Birmingham since 1929. We absolutely love when our clients choose Armac Martin handles, as the quality is perfection. When we asked the Commercial Director of Armac Martin to tell us why they make and design their products in the UK, he told us,
"We believe it is incredibly important to manufacture in the UK. We continually invest in people to ensure skills are handed down from generation to generation. Alongside this we always embrace new technology and are continually investing in plant and machinery. Having our in house design team working so closely with our production team, as well as having input from clients, allows us to hone in on the finest of details to ensure that the products we launch are exactly what our clients desire."

Perrin and Rowe
Most of our clients purchase a Perrin and Rowe tap, the quality is unrivaled. Perrin and Rowe have been making their taps from their workshop in Essex since 1978. When we asked Perrin and Rowe about their business model they told us, "We are proud to say that Perrin & Rowe products are still made in England in an environment that treasures our staff, promotes family values and concentrates on the perfection of each product it designs, makes and delivers."
"By controlling the entire manufacturing processes from our UK facilities – from concept design through to prototyping, casting, machining, soldering, polishing, plating, assembly, testing, logistics and after sales service – we are able to deliver high quality brassware according to any company’s specific requirements."
