The headquarters for the Chilfen Joinery division are based in Letchworth Garden City, Hertfordshire. We operate a 33,000 sq. ft. production plant that is fully equipped with the latest technologies. In line with our ongoing efforts to provide advanced products and services, we continually review our equipment and research new technologies to enhance and improve our production processes.
Key investments in new equipment are extremely important to us to ensure we continue to provide the best possible products. Investments in our management systems and processes are also vital to ensure effective management and design development.
