A local woodworking business has had a very promising start to 2018, by being asked to be part of Not on the High Street, and attending Nationwide Trade Shows in London and Manchester.
Scorton-based William Firth Woodcraft is an independent woodworking workshop where all its products created in the workshop are handmade using traditional processes and best practices.
Working with customers including Bells of Lazonby, Westmorland Family and Breweries nationwide, the business has built a strong brand throughout 2017 and now is showing a very encouraging start to 2018.
The first success of the year sees the business undertaking a full photoshoot in advance of being added to international retail website ‘Not on The High Street’. Employing the skills of Nick Dagger Photography, the team are working to add all products in time for Mother’s Day with a brand-new range of Personalised Products, exclusive to the website.
January also sees William Firth Woodcraft head down to London and then Manchester for two of the largest trade shows in the Country. Top Drawer is a major international trade show, encompassing a wide variety of suppliers and makers from design-led gifts, to lifestyle, fashion and accessories.
Held twice a year, the business is attending the Spring/Summer event at Olympia London from 14-16 January.
After this, the team head to Manchester for the annual Manchester Beer Festival Trade Event, showcasing the product range for this sector to Breweries from around the Country.
William Firth said: “It’s fantastic to have such a promising start to our second full year of trading. We spent a lot of time building relationships in 2017 with great success; this year we will focus on growth and expanding the business to improve on our success to date.”
