Intelligently different

Forging traditional craftsmanship with modern technology

Not everyone can say they have a 200 year legacy.

1803 was an important year in history: George III was on the throne of England; William Pitt was Prime Minister; Napoleon declared war on England and started building an invasion fleet in Boulogne; and George Henry Denne bought a barrow! Denne Joinery has now grown from its humble beginnings into a renowned tier 1 provider of quality joinery services.

Making things has been in our blood for two centuries with a sense of pride and passion that comes from an unerring eye for detail and perfection.

Combining the use of the most advanced woodworking machinery with the traditional skills of experienced and professional craftsmen, we provide a range of services from supply only to fully installed joinery.
Our Vision

“To create exceptional standards in everything we do, against which all others are measured.”

Denne is with you every step of the way

From the initial estimating and cost planning through to pre-manufacture design detailing, manufacturing, delivery to site, site fixing, and post-handover services, we keep all our core activities in-house – meeting expectations, reducing risk and speeding up delivery.

We work collaboratively with design teams – value engineering whilst protecting the original design intent to provide the most practical joinery solutions.

Our in house workshop includes machining, veneering, assembly, polishing, solid surface, transport & logistics. Production and programming are vigorously monitored and controlled to ensure each item is ready on time and finished to the highest quality.

We provide dedicated professional Project Managers and Site Managers, emotionally invested, who proactively take full ownership for the duration of the project, coordinating the installation programme, and the delivery and quality of the final product.

We pride ourselves on delivering exceptional quality on all our projects ensuring the reduction of any snags or defects through our long-time embedded quality methods and processes which comply with the requirements of ISO 9001:2015. Our snag free culture extends to our supply chain, many who have been working with us for a number of years 

Culture of collaborators

We have created a healthy culture of collaboration which begins with a realistic and honest overview of each of our individuals’ abilities, as well as their vulnerabilities. We build our cross-functional teams around staff, suppliers and sub-contractors who compliment and support one another and empower them to make a positive impact on our customers.

Our people and our relationships

We are proud of the team that we have built with over 50% of the business having over 10 years of loyal and dedicated service. We encourage continual improvement by analysing past performance, creating 360 feedback and recognising our shared successes. We work hard to build and maintain pro-active, strong relationships built on mutual trust, reliability and honesty with our customers.

Our leadership team

Our leadership team are key in executing the vision for our business by establishing effective communication and inspiring and motivating our staff through the shared objectives of great people delivering great service and producing great results. Our creative yet relaxed approach empowers our values of shared success through a passion for quality, a can-do attitude and teamwork.
