We started as a family business, and we are still a family business. It’s a proud tradition – spanning three generations of leather and wood craftsmen and furniture makers – and one that means we can promise you the very best quality in everything we craft here in our bespoke joinery workshop in Tamworth.
It’s a tradition that continues, as we pass on those valuable skills to new talents, use world-leading machinery and the very best hardwoods to create your wooden promotional products and bespoke projects, large or small.
If you can imagine it, we can make it. Our products – from bespoke oak furniture to exhibition stand design and build, from finest quality oak serving boards and branded products to beautifully crafted wooden items for the home, and from meticulously detailed laser engraving to precision laser cutting in wood and acrylic – are of the finest quality, stunning to look at but practical and hard wearing.
Always in his Dad’s workshop, our founder, Rich, starts making the random things that young boys make, using any materials he could get his hands on.
After a high flying career in construction management, Rich took a leap to follow his passion, founding Bspoak with the help of the Prince’s Trust.
We were awarded Guild of Master Craftsmen accreditation, which really hammered home the attention to detail that goes into everything we make.
Our new name, Oak&Ford celebrates everything we are passionate about as a growing family business.
We said goodbye to our small, rural workshop and hello to our new 2,500 sq. ft. premises. More space + more machinery = even more potential!
We’re already planning a move to an even bigger space, so that we can increase our capabilities even more... watch this space.
WHAT’S NEXT FOR OAK&FORD
We’ll be attending our first trade shows in 2016. Our laser machines will be coming with us, so there’ll be the chance to see them (and us!) in action – watch the magic happen!
