Our story

Chilfen Joinery Ltd was founded in 1960 by Alec Childs and Mick Fennel. The first premises were originally farm buildings in Arlesey, Bedfordshire. Alec and Mick started by manufacturing market gardening items and vegetable crates for local farms. As business grew, the farm buildings were gradually turned into industrial units and a production facility was created.

Alec used to visit local companies on his bicycle to promote the Chilfen brand and create new business. His philosophy was ‘if a client needs a product that is made from wood, we will find a way of making it’. The Chilfen brand began to grow and eventually split into three divisions, Chilfen Joinery, Chilfen Export Packaging and Chilfen Contracting. By adapting to change and working closely with its customers, Chilfen continued to grow and achieve success, eventually relocating to Letchworth Garden City where we continue to offer our clients the highest level of service they have come to expect.
