Small Business of the Year entrant – Brookeswood Joinery

A Staffordshire Moorlands company that specialises in designing and manufacturing handcrafted timber windows, doors and staircases is forecast to turnover £1 million for the first time as it celebrates its tenth anniversary.

Brookeswood Joinery, which is run by a father, mother and son team, has expanded over the years and now employs a growing team of 20 which has increased from 12 in 2020.

Their handcrafted products are all designed and manufactured by joiners on site at their manufacturing headquarters at Fould Farm in Leek.

Over the last 12 months they’ve completed more than 75 bespoke projects with plans to increase that over the coming year.

Sales and Projects Director Bradley Brookes said: “Brookeswood’s success and longevity is down to the hard work of the talented team we have here and the sheer quality of our handcrafted products. We have seen the number of projects we’ve completed over the last 12 months grow and we have plans to continue that growth. Our team is expanding and we recently took on a fantastic new apprentice who is a credit to the team and a real star of the future.”

He added: “The feedback we get from our customers is fantastic and makes everything we do at Brookeswood worthwhile. We’re looking forward to building for the future, increasing our brand exposure and taking the company to the next level.”

Bradley’s mum Sue Brookes, a fellow director of the business, said: “We’ve come a long way since those first days when my husband Neil was designing and producing bespoke caskets. Now we are a team of 20, creating our handcrafted products across the Midlands with a fantastic, skilled, hardworking team.

She added: “Bradley has been instrumental in transforming the way we operate as a company. As a child he was diagnosed with ADHD and was also dyslexic, so school wasn’t always easy for him but he has always been entrepreneurial who has a real flair for business. He is a creative thinker and problem solver and those skills, plus the way he has been able to build such great relationships with customers, suppliers and the team, have undoubtedly transformed the business. Brookeswood really is going from strength to strength and we are looking forward to what the future holds.”

Brookeswood Joinery has entered the Small Business of the Year category of the Staffordshire University Business Awards.
