Drumoak Kitchens: 50 years of quality, craftsmanship and outstanding design
Drumoak Kitchens is celebrating fifty years in business, during which time, the company has evolved into one of Scotland’s leading bespoke kitchen design companies.
Back in 1972, Neil Gow and two friends set up a small contracting company in Culter which prospered as the oil industry transformed the fortunes of the region. Within five years, the company was focused on creating trendy pine furniture, trading as The Pine Workshops, Drumoak. They’ve even made pine furniture for the Queen, using trees planted in Queen Victoria’s reign!
The business soon moved into a new building as demand for Drumoak kitchens grew, but the business always remains true to its values of craftsmanship, great design, and customer service.
Now Drumoak creates kitchens and furniture in other woods like ash, maple and oak, retaining the outstanding craftsmanship which is still at the heart of every kitchen they create, whether it’s wood, a painted kitchen or a custom fitted kitchen by Drumoak’s German partner, Hacker.
Managing Director Andy Gauld explained, ‘After installation, customers become part of the Drumoak Club. We’re always there if remedial work is required. We’ll even come and replace a hinge if you bought your kitchen from us 25 years ago. Drumoak Kitchens are really built to last, which is why everyone involved at every stage of design, manufacture and installation gives a huge amount of care and attention to every aspect of every client.’
‘As Drumoak has grown, some things remain unchanged. The company employ their own kitchen fitters, meaning our commitment to bespoke craftsmanship underpins every stage of a kitchen project, from the initial showroom visit, to surveys and working with the designer, from choosing layouts and finishes to installation and even clearing up!’
