THE GROTTY PEOPLE TAKE OVER THE WORKSHOP

Famed for its trendy pop-ups, street art, and food markets, Shoreditch has an undeniable appeal, which draws the crowds. Falkus Joinery took up residence in this trendy part of town in the late 70’s and after four decades, we’re still proud to call 14 Anning Street, home.

In order to pay homage to this unique part of London, we set out to try and capture the essence of the neighborhood, by opening our doors and inviting in two very infamous graffiti crews, The Rolling People (TRP) & Team Grot Bags (TGB), to spray paint our workshop in an attempt to bottle some of that Shoreditch magic.

A local touch

Our aim was to try and bring some of the outside in, but also to establish a creative space for local street artists to use as they wish to create an on-going piece of art that evolves with the times.

We hoped that by bringing the vibrancy of Shoreditch into our workshop that it would serve as a daily source of inspiration and a reminder to inject a sense of fun and personality into everything we do.

CELEBRATING 60 YEARS OF EXCELLENCE

This January marks Falkus Joinery’s 60th Anniversary as joinery manufacturers and industry leaders. Established by the Jerram brothers in 1957, the duo set up shop in Shoreditch and built a lasting legacy. This family run business has grown from strength-to-strength and to this day remains at the fore front of joinery innovation.    

The London joinery has stood the test of time and we believe that’s due to the workshops unwavering passion for joinery. Our fierce investment in people has developed a strong family culture and a dedication to responsible purchasing has safeguarded sustainability. This careful consideration leaves us feeling confident that we’ll continue to uphold this long-standing trade and thrive.

A brief history of Falkus Joinery

Founded by the Falkus family as an independent joinery manufacturer, the company prospered and were therefore looking to expand. When meeting with the Jerram’s it was agreed that it would be mutually beneficial to merge companies and expand their collective business offerings.

For both companies a successful partnership ensued over the decades which has allowed the collective to thrive and expand into new sectors. Today the Jerram Group is comprised of four divisions: Jerram Falkus Construction, Falkus Joinery, Jerram Development and Jerram Falkus. As a croup we’ll continue to develop with the times and provide high-end construction and joinery service to the UK.  

Take a journey through the decades and discover our combined history with the Jerram Group. We hope that you find this just as interesting as we did.

The future

Looking back it’s clear to see that we’ve come a long way and we’re thrilled to see that traditional joinery is a trade that continues to flourish in this increasingly digital age.

It’s difficult to see what the future has in store for our joinery manufacturer but we look forward to what may come and to celebrating the next 60!

INVESTING IN MACHINERY

To keep us at the top of our game, Falkus Joinery is committed to investing in the latest state of the art joinery machinery. This allows us to work smart, remain agile and stay updated with modern joinery trends.

Unfortunately, a lot of the smaller joineries have closed as a result of being unable to purchase new machinery and therefore having to produce products by hand which increases labour costs, meaning that client is forced to seek out a more cost-effective solution.

At Falkus Joinery we have been very fortunate to be in a position to continue to invest in machinery, but that isn’t just where it stops. We’re fanatical about our trade and are committed to our continued development and improving our standards. From the screws to the glues we’ve done our homework!
