Established in 1867 by the Great, Great, Grandfather of the current Managing Director Ben Burbidge, Burbidge & Son Ltd boasts a rich legacy in woodworking. Originally a manufacturer of wood turned sports equipment such as cricket stumps and croquet mallets, the company expanded in 1900, to supply a wide variety of wooden products for both textile and engineering applications.

Following the Second World War, when regular production was temporarily halted to concentrate on producing war products, in particular wooden bullets to supply to the armed forces for target practice, the company re-emerged from the devastation that was the Coventry Blitz to resume production in a newly re-built factory at Burnsall Road. In 1973, after the acquisition of a second factory site in Coventry and acknowledging the success and potential growth of the kitchen industry, Burbidge began to develop its own kitchen product range. Soon the company name became synonymous with both excellent product design and an uncompromising stance on quality. Today we still continue to strive to delight customers by combining the highest quality materials and workmanship with product designs that will be highly functional and add beauty and value to your home.
