Diamond Shopfitting is a high-end bespoke joinery manufacturing company and was established 1st April 1993 by Joe Woodhead and David Haughton. Both worked together in the Setting Out department and managed the production in the factory of Lycett and Platt, a very highly respected Shopfitting company, working on some of the most prestigious projects of its time.
By April 1995 Diamond Shopfitting had grown quite quickly and needed to expand the highly skilled workforce and moved into larger premises. In 2012 Joe retired and Karen Haughton, David's wife joined Diamond Shopfitting as Company Secretary, concentrating on the financial and HR side of the business.
David Haughton, managing director has the same vision today as back in 1993, to deliver a high quality product and service to our broad range of clients.
Steve Crompton, the Commercial Director started at Diamond as an apprentice joiner in 2002. Steve is now highly trained on CAD and helps clients with development of their projects.
In 2012 Dan Fallows joined as an apprentice joiner. He quickly graduated in 2015 to becoming the Works Manager. Dan also gained experience on CAD, which very quickly became natural to him.
Louise Russell joined Karen in 2017 and has now taken over the financial running of the company.
Dave, Steve and Dan each see the projects through with the clients and guide when needed right through to the end of the job.
As a company we have grown since 1993 and take our commitment to our employees very seriously. Over the years we have trained more than 50 apprentices and we are very proud to have recently received a special award from Trafford College for our commitment to training apprentices over the last 25 years to a very high standard.
We have always worked closely with the client to achieve and deliver their wishes, whether that is a professional design company with drawings and computer generated visuals or a client that needs guiding through the process with us supplying sketches, samples, prototypes, and drawings.
We always take each item as far as possible, fully erected and checked before leaving the factory.
