Our Heritage

The history of The Timber Sash Co, formerly known as Atkinsons Traditional Joinery, is a tale of passion, dedication, and evolution that spans several decades. The company's journey began in 1978 when a skilled joiner and craftsman named David Atkinson founded Atkinsons Traditional Joinery with the vision of 
preserving and promoting the art of traditional joinery in his local community.

In its early years, Atkinsons Traditional Joinery focused on producing a wide range of traditional wooden joinery products, including doors, staircases, and casement windows. David Atkinson's commitment to quality and craftsmanship earned the company a loyal customer base, and it became renowned for its attention to detail and authentic designs.

As time passed, David's son, JohnAtkinson, joined the family business and brought his own expertise and innovative ideas to the table. Under his guidance, the company continued to grow, and they noticed a growing demand for high-quality timber sliding sash windows.

Recognizing this trend and the opportunity to specialize in a niche market, JohnAtkinson decided to rebrand the company in 2021 as The Timber Sash Co, with a renewed focus on crafting the ultimate high-performance timber sliding sash windows.

With the rebranding, The Timber Sash Co invested in cutting-edge technologies and modern 
manufacturing techniques to ensure their windows not only retained the timeless charm of traditional joinery but also boasted superior performance in terms of energy efficiency, security, and ease of use.

By honing their expertise and embracing the latest advancements, The Timber Sash Co quickly gained recognition as a leader in the timber sliding sash window industry. Their windows found their way into a diverse array of projects, from historic restorations to contemporary architectural masterpieces, earning accolades for their craftsmanship and exceptional performance.

Under JohnAtkinson's leadership, the company continued to thrive and expand its reach, delivering their products to customers both locally and nationally. Their dedication to excellence and customer 
satisfaction became the cornerstone of their success, and the company's reputation soared.

As wemoved further into the 21st century, The Timber Sash Co remain committed to innovation and 
continuous improvement. They collaborated with architects and designers to create bespoke window solutions, pushing the boundaries of what was possible with timber sliding sash windows.
