About Thorington Joinery

The roots of Thorington Joinery go back over two decades, when our founders met during their trade apprenticeships at a joinery company in Suffolk. Later, recognising that each had a particularly strong passion for their craft, they decided to found their own joinery business.

Twelve years on, Thorington Joinery has gone from strength to strength, steadily building a loyal client base, allowing us to grow our team, premises, and combine investment in woodworking technology with traditional craftsmanship to provide a diverse range of innovative and traditional joinery services.

A reputation built on all-round quality

At Thorington Joinery, we have built our reputation on the quality of our work and the delivery of our service. We believe in honest partnerships from initial design and specification, all the way through to a successfully completed project, and reflect this in our timescales, pricing and, ultimately, promises to our customers.

A huge part of our reputation is due our highly skilled and close-knit team. We have hand-picked a team of trusted, reliable and, most importantly, expert joiners and cabinet makers; the vast majority of whom we have worked with for many years, or trained through our craftsmanship apprenticeship scheme.

Every piece crafted by Thorington Joinery’s time-served team undergoes an extensive quality control process by our founders who see, touch and feel every product before it leaves our workshop. We take a tremendous amount of pride in work and our reputation, and this process ensures we uphold the high standards expected from Thorington Joinery across Suffolk, Essex, Cambridgeshire and nationwide.

Working with closely with major contractors, architects, designers and private clients.

Working in partnership with contractors, designers and architects is core to our business. We understand that the quality of our work is critical to the success of your project. We aim to add value at every stage of our partnership with you, from advising on design and materials, to delivering on our promises, when we say we will.

When you collaborate with Thorington Joinery, you’ll benefit from our expertise in everything from the complexities of restoring historic buildings, to the most contemporary, cost effective and environmentally friendly solutions on the market.


A focus on sustainable timber is vitally important, for both environmental reasons and the future of our industry! Wood is a natural resource and this is not lost on us during the process. A huge amount of hard work goes into transforming a great tree which once stood tall into a beautiful finished article that will be loved and appreciated.

The quality and characteristics of material are of ultimate importance throughout the joinery process. We are extremely selective in our choice of suppliers, working only with FSC (plus PEFC and TRADA) certified timber merchants who supply only extremely reliable and responsibly sourced timber.

If you’re interested in our any of our services, give us a call on 01473 310311 to talk about what we can do for you, completely free of obligation.

To accommodate our growing business our workshop expanded in January 2018, doubling the size and enlarging our spray shop. This was part funded by the ERDF.
