About Our Company

Here for You

The history of The Timber Sash Company, 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, John Atkinson, 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 specialise in a niche market, John Atkinson decided to re-brand the company in 2021 as The Timber Sash Company, with a renewed focus on crafting the ultimate high-performance timber sliding sash windows. With the rebranding, The Timber Sash Company 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.

The company's commitment to sustainability also played a crucial role in their new direction. They sought out responsibly sourced timber from certified forests, reducing their environmental impact and catering to eco-conscious customers. By honing their expertise and embracing the latest advancements, The Timber Sash Company 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 John Atkinson'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 we move further into the 21st century, The Timber Sash Company 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. The history of The Timber Sash Company is a testament to the power of tradition, innovation, and family values.


From its humble beginnings as Atkinsons Traditional Joinery to its transformation into a specialised and highly-regarded company, it stands as a shining example of how a dedication to craftsmanship can evolve and flourish over time. As they continue their journey, The Timber Sash Company remains steadfast in their pursuit of creating the ultimate high-performance timber sliding sash windows, perpetuating a legacy of excellence for generations to come.
