In 2015, Holbein Carpentry & Joinery expanded to a larger workshop in Kenmare. The move has been instrumental in the continuous growth and development of the business. Since then, the company has employed several more staff members, has integrated many new machines into the workshop production, and has increased the products and services offered to client’s. Furthermore, the company was able to increase its capacity for commercial work and is now able to supply a range of fire doors, as well as a large undertaking of doors, windows, stairs, batch production, and installations.
In 2017, Michael O’Sullivan joined the company, and began working closely with Oliver. He has been a driving force in developing a brand and identity for the company by further establishing a reputation for Holbein Carpentry & Joinery, that is associated with unique products and quality. Between 2017 and 2020, the company expanded our fleet of vans and implemented lean manufacturing systems (Lean manufacturing is a methodology, that focuses on minimising waste within manufacturing systems, while simultaneously maximising productivity). It has always been the attitude and goal of Holbein Carpentry & Joinery to reach maximum efficiency, deliver quality, and optimise the process as a whole. This proved for an easy transition towards lean systems, as many of its values were already integral to the running of the business. Lean manufacturing is now employed in every aspect of Holbein & Carpentry & Joinery’s daily business.
In 2019, Holbein Carpentry & Joinery purchased the workshop and the surrounding land. In early 2020, the company invested in a state of the art external extraction system, which greatly improves the quality of working conditions, as well as protecting the long-term health of our team.
Over the years, Holbein Carpentry & Joinery has rapidly developed and evolved to become the company it is today. We look forward to what is sure to be a bright future.
