Woodcraft goes Global!

Posted on June 14, 2023

Over recent months we have seen an uplift in enquiries and orders from customers overseas. Our benches are now finding homes all over the world as more and more international customers are ordering from our core range of benches or ordering a totally bespoke, made to measure curved bench or outdoor table.

Enquiries are now coming in from locations as far afield as Canada, America, Central Europe, Dubai and Japan. Here are some of the projects we have recently completed:

They provide sanitation and health and safety equipment integral to combating the worldwide Covid pandemic. The company purchased these wooden benches, tables, chairs and picnic suits as they wanted to reward their employees for the difficult and sometimes impossible tasks they had to undertake during the height of the pandemic.

We made the furniture and transported them to Manchester where Nippon Express Global Logistics then packed and from Liverpool shipped them by shipping freight to Tokyo in Japan. From there they were transported to Saraya's Osaka head office. A total of over 5800 miles as the crow flies. Obviously a pretty special crow to fly that far.

We were approached a few months ago to produce a bespoke curved bench for their customer's project which required English furniture as MESA are creating an English style garden for them.

The bench is now finished and because the packing company and Nippon Express did such a great job on our Saraya Japan order, we are using them to do our packing & shipping who will provide the door to door shipping.

This dining table was 3.25 meters in length. It is made to measure to our customer’s requirements and shipped it to Middlesborough with an onward journey to the customers holiday home on Portugal.

The table was custom made to a very sturdy design and treated with a few coats of wood treatment in order for it to cope with the hotter temperatures found in places like Portugal.
